Not Forever

i want to be with you
but not forever
not like this
trapped in time
in stillness
a prisoner
of selfish expectations.

i want to be with you
forever
a river that changes its course
sometimes
now you see me
now you don’t
predictably unpredictable
reliably free.

these things
only matter
when you really think about it now
and then
