Let The River Run Dry

i wish
somebody woulda told me
that some soul mates
wouldn't stay forever
i wish
i'd have known
that letting go
was welcoming
better parts of ourselves

i wish 
i didn't fall so hard
i didn't scream so soft 
i didn't bottle up tears
drowning in them

complaining bout keeping my head
above oceans I could've let 
spill into streams

sinking in memories 
that could've been dreams 

i wish 
i'd have known 
that some soul mates
wouldn't stay forever 

that the river only runs
as long as the rain falls

that forever is fantasy
or fallacy
or fear 
bottled up as fate 

and here we are
fighting for forever
when the sun is saying
let the river run dry
