Best Poem of Tom Courtney

Star Child

Star child
so far away alone
standing on the edge of the universe
You can't be reached
You can't be played
You can’t be preached
You've traveled so far
You are the only one
You think

The earth lies in wait
your virgin touch
your imagination and faith to burst forth
Soon you will emerge
from the cocoon of your pain
Alone inside, you will find the way
if you can
And you can
only if you will

My prayer is not for you
though I love you
My prayer is for
the idea of you
who you alone were meant to be

You...

Dying For Love

From a million a thousand
I narrowed it to one
We married and ventured
til all came undone
Sometimes pairs lose it
what life is made of
And they go their own ways
while they’re dying for love

[Hata Bildir]
