Tears I spill

Written by: Carmen Castro

This darkness my choice for taking all the wrong turns 
My guiding fire just flickers it no longer burns 
My eyes are the windows to my inner soul 
These windows wide open let in nothing but cold  

My brain is my prison for it's in control 
My heart slowly fading as my body grows old  

This body my casket, my spirit lies still 
My eyes mourn my death with these tears I spill
