divorce
SCHEDAR Apr 2023
A child wandering
a forest wilted green
disenchanted
with a heart of abandonment
where leaves covered her ears
to protect
and time froze
and her screams, muted
and the grounds were cold and hard
and touch too painful
and what seemed as though
then, the way out
was nowhere....

love letters
SCHEDAR Apr 2023
After years of his words
being put to rest..

I dug up a tomb of letters
embedded deep within the
foundation of my heart...

Resurfacing memories
that at best, should've
remained buried

SCHEDAR Apr 2023
Thank you for
the invite to
your beautiful home

The sun's rays
lay a welcome mat
across the manicured lawn

I'd really love to stop in
but I get so hurt passing through

all the piercing, prickly thorns
your insecurities once grew
When you're not really welcome at all

together
but you never told me your

I waited a lifetime

Tomorrow,

Sometimes

       I step in

depress the wrong button
               closing the door
instead,

                I am going

silly labyrinth
SCHEDAR Mar 2023
Be careful
not to fall
for her
tricky ways
she confuses
and keeps you
wandering deep
in her convoluted
maze
She is dark
You never know
what she wants
nor does she
she is fluid
she just likes to see
you squirm
She is jealous
there is nobody better than her
or else
She is cold
She twists words
into sour lemons
makes you question yourself
wondering who you are
in her convoluted maze
The trick is to know
you will never please her
so if she invites you
into her silly labyrinth
respectfully decline

nautical twilight
SCHEDAR Mar 2023
The evening rush
packs up daylight,
inside a suitcase
bound for stars....
Beads of heavy haze
swallow lights
of the vineyard
Flying within a
seamless horizon,
Atlantic's blackness
seals the night
Love's blindness,
love's chaos
dissolve into
the
nautical twilight

closer

Remnant
SCHEDAR Feb 2023
She is panning for forgiveness
through the darkest sands of time
minerals from charred bone
fill the silt, left far behind
Remnants of tarnished memories
let guilt fossilize the years
how she longs to melt those frozen crystals, back into her own tears

Cry for the silence
Cry for the screams
Cry for the freedom
that forgiveness finds
in dreams

Sounds of Saturn Spinning
SCHEDAR Feb 2023
Only with you
can time stretch forever
where it feels
like an endless walk
circling the Earth

Round and round we go
like giggling children,
heightening our
senses to new altitudes.....

Dizzy,
we gaze into
each other's eyes,
exploring the depths
of gravity's absence

Floating,
we pass the
city's evening moon
listening for the
echoing sounds of
Saturn spinning...

I will see you in a short while

many moons ago
SCHEDAR Dec 2022
She is pale, her eyes strain
looking back at them,
many moons ago
a simple place, a simple time
together, on fire
Just the mere glimpse of their warm memories, she becomes aware that she can withstand the cold rush of any lonely time that may come her way.
The color returns to her face as she now understands that there is so much strength in the foundations of love, she will pull through
The strength in memories of love can take us through many hardships

Follow me, she says
down this thrilling flight of stairs
this way you can
rescue me when I begin to

As frightening as it is to me
I'll always go back for more
it's so much more exciting than
being called ordinary, or a bore
So I will continue to dig myself
into depths as far down as I can
together we'll share my misery
come, give me your hand
it takes practice putting the shovel down

My soul has lift off,
the slow tempo of
my breath suddenly
boundless

My drums perforate
surrounded by a
universal register of
beats and measures
rolled into a mysterious,
melodic constellation

Dashing across the board
my fingers feverishly frisk
for the keys
of
Mozart, Prokofiev,
Rachmaninoff

With hammers and strings
I scale the sounds
of perfection
while properly perched
in front of
Grandma's Pianola
pretending to be
composed
Childhood memories of my Grandmother's player piano

Amber Moon, so full
please be still,
do not continue to rise
for the strength of your pull
will command the tears
to break free from the
lonely corners of my eyes

Amber Moon,
stay where you are
don't let our distance
make me reach too far,
While getting sleepy
on the sand,
the eve lays you to rest
upon the palm of my hand

Amber Moon,
the sweet harvest
that feeds my soul
the mystery of
your orange glow
never grows old
