Thank YouMy tears threaten to carve a path across my cheeks.Thank You by ThornZfire
I can feel the tightness in my chest begin.
Just in the nick of time, you save me.
The scent of the perfume from you lingers.
Before the tears comes a smile.
Someone special, far away, cares.
A horrible friend wrapped in my own misery... that's me.
So much time given to my darkness, I neglect you.
My friend, are you warm in the light?
Do you need a shoulder, an ear, or someone to listen?
The tears are blurring my vision.
My earring, cold against my neck, halts them for a minute.
That is you again, helping without being here.
These tiny, precious earrings remind me someone is there.
I'm whispering these words to you my friend.
How thankful I am to have met such a special soul.
In all my darkness there is a shining light.
I am forever grateful that light is you.
First off, Lani is short for Laylani, a nickname given me years ago by someone. It translates to "angel" and it's what I would prefer to go by.
I do a bit of everything:
Photography ~ Behind a camera is a safe place to be. Being able to capture a moment and relive it is amazing.
Drawing ~ I love to draw whatever comes to me or my version of a subject I'm given. We only live once so just do what you love and let only you judge you.
Poetry ~ I've written poetry since I was about 15 and been published once. Without my poems, I believe I would be in a crazy house right now. Not all my poetry is bright and happy nor is all dark and sad. One thing all of it is ... honest and part of me.
Digital ~ I have done edits for a server of an online game. I like doing digital work which I learn as I go.

My son whose autism just makes him more amazing
Rules of my life:
~Music is a necessity. No matter what I'm doing there is always music playing and most times I'm singing along. Singing is part of me. Thankfully I've been told I'm not bad at it.
~Coffee is a necessity. It relaxes me & yes I can be found drinking from a fresh pot at 3AM.
~ I may have an unusual sense of humor, but if you need someone to talk with you know where to go. My humor is a life defense mechanism.
~I hate spiders.
