I Said Not

Not as you were
        but as you’ve been
                or as you will have
going to be
        not as you saw
                but as you’ve seen
or as you will have
        going to see
                not as you bend
but as you’ve beamed
        or as you will have
                going to bleed
not as you send
        but as you’ve seamed
                or as you will have
going to save.
