Twice

Running like a colt through fields of grass
I found an eternal that will ever last 
Or it found me 
Lost in a mire of indignity
At fourteen
It was a crack in the facade of the dream 
And the light got in
And it just happened to be shining on him
When we came across each other 
A supersister and a soulbrother
To barely touch but to meet
The lines that parallel our feet
As we move them to and fro
Try to find meaning before we go
And I don't know where he is right now
Coz I stopped working the clock somehow 
And he's cool with the brush of wisdom
My identity became a prison
I let go like the empty leaves
That blow from the trees 
In autumn when it's time
And I try on calling you mine
As you take a step to the foreign shore
I can't help but love you more
As you reveal yourself to me
I realise that to be free
Is to have your arms locked like a vice
Around me for the first time, twice
