Poetry

Rain Heron creates "a poetic smorgasbord of imagination, humor and rock 'n' roll, fusing so many influences from Larkin to Heaney,
creating something amazingly fresh and zeitgeist!"

— Spencer McCarthy, BBC

  • Dancing with Mr D

    Death knocks at my door
    yet he’s such a bore!
  • Dollhouse
    Woman Without Words
    Your words are my poetry
    my life is your self-directed film...

    I Never Could
    So you want her
    she's young and pretty...
  • Goodbye Mother
    I saw the end
    before it began...

    Broken dreams are so serene
    there's nothing to do but wonder...
  • Follow the Road
    Lies
    I am trying to get it right —
    but you fucking lied...
  • Nothing Less (for Zoë)
    The chosen one
    with light all around you...
  • All Tied Up
    They are tied up
    by a snug gift...
  • Love Locks
    You + Me
    My heart is cold
    chilled by your disregard...
  • To love, to live, to lie
    To love, to live, to lie
    in the midst of the truth...
  • Perhaps (dedicated to #NeverAgain)
    Are we living a lie?
    Are we lying to live?
  • Pale Blue Rose
    The regrets, the cigarettes
    remind me...

    The little girl
    she crawls into a small wooden box...

    I once saw the truth
    it flashed before me...
  • Elegy of a Year
    Kissing a man on New Year's Eve...
  • Heart in a Jar
    Pull out my heart
    cut all the strings...
  • Ground Zero
    I hear nothing but my heart.
    beating to time...
  • Fanatical
    Be still, my love
    do you hear the voice...
  • No kin o' mine
    Princess of turns
    ego that burns...
  • Night of Wonder
    A crisp autumn day
    Of pure air and light...
  • Woven
    Your friendship is fleeting
    your words empty and spare...
  • Fortune Teller
    She saw my past in my future
    she saw the tears in my laugh
  • Shadows & Silhouettes
    In a waking dream
    not all is as it seems.
  • Shades of Grey
    Seed of life
    garden of death
