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


Read the full of Star Child

Jenny 1

And Jenny this night is darkest
as I’m standing in the rain
You taught me every pleasure
brings with it its own pain

I thought you were my lover
You were sweetness in my tea
You were honey in my coffee
Now you ain’t got time for me
