#WDYS/Twiglet — Stars and Clouds

Stars streak across the sky at night
My head spins erratically
Vertigo overwhelms me

My heart feels empty
My life feels iffy
I am not equipped to deal

Layers of clouds during the day
Cast shadows upon my grief
Cannot stop the flow of my tears

    That’s a very creative use of prompts, Fandango. It’s a good poem, too.
