Base Of My Spine

Emotions creep from the base of my spine,
seep from my shoulders to my neck and twine,
down to my gut and into my wrists and spread to my thighs,
flooding the ducts of my open eyes.

I love you too much and too forever
Had a dream we were together,
awoke hoping to feel your body next to mine,
now tears creep up from the base of my spine,

to my cheekbones to my eyes,
from the bitter surprise,
that you're not here.
So this is love? Not this ache, not this fear.

My insecurities creeps up 
from the past I can't change ...well fine,
and everything else pours,
from the base of my spine.
