My head hurts
I'm seeing double and
I don't want to know
it occured even once

So turn off the lights
Draw the curtains
Blackout the mirrors
Sweep it under the carpet
Cover my ears
Shhhh, don't make a sound

Maybe, just maybe
it will fade away.....

they mean everything

Each one

Falling off
she leaves,
leaves her tree
breaking free
of her majestic mentor
Falling over time,
leaving what she has
learned of truth
behind
Carried upon a
cradle in a breeze,
Tossing about in
crisp, edgy, crimson,
swaying, whirling, dancing
look at me, love me

Pretty little wind-up doll
wound up in the wrong hands

Was going through the motions
for too long

Years of tinkering
with her gears

she springs out of control

Repairs include
conserving energy and
resting her joints to
revitalize connectivity

She will no longer
be entertaining in your
playpen

At breakfast,
my family politely
asks, that I
gather my thoughts
so by lunch,
they can politely
pick them apart

Dinner is take out
since by then, they have
exhausted their insult quota
and there is no longer a reason
to conversate
or rather, talk that makes us feel small
That which we do to ourselves

Chiseled mind
bound to synthetic joy
kiss the warden
Goodbye
Time to go play in your
Sandbox

Turn your back
on the gentle hands
that once carried you
to
chase the flaming
wings that
silence your tongue
within a casket
Your Decaying
VOICE-BOX

A magnificent
shelter for
your invitation
to death's door

Hear them shower you
with lies
taste their creamy
smiles and sweet skin

Inhale the breath
around the baby's tooth
with meandering nares
that swell from the
Spry Scent of Sin

Experience
the Vial
dance within your
effervescent blood

Your soul's
on a leash
waiting to be torn to shreds

Your mind
a balloon on a string­čÄł
waiting to POP

Your nerves
burrow beneath the
EARTH
surrounded by faults
Ready to CrACk

No!
There's no turning back
Now go play in your sandbox
and
Bury Your Toys
Hope and prayers for anyone feeling lonely.
You are not alone.

Set your gaze
upon me
Bowing to the
Queen's Heart
in the celestial

I am never far from you
Distance
lies in the
virtue of magnitude
You shine brighter

A deeper,
interstellar
communication
Funnels
beneath
our
timeless souls
to carry our
love afar
FOREVER
This is dedicated to my Grandfather. He was a Norwegian Sea Captain, who I never had the pleasure of meeting. While reading some of his old records of sailing, I came across his chart- plotting of stars for navigation, in the night skies. One  of the stars he plotted often was called SCHEDAR.. She sits near QUEEN'S HEART, in the constellation of CASSIOPEIA. I wish I had met him.

Etched in the ventricles
lying deep within the

changing the shape

where escape is an

It's about a sweet crush that endured a lifetime, beyond your precious years

Miss you my secret love.

The Jetty
SCHEDAR Jun 18
I used to think
it was our
destiny,
to walk on water
together

Nothin would bring us down

But it's been years
since we sank
below
ocean-spray's
spirited mist

I often
reflect upon our
love lost, like
the buried treasures
trapped in sunken ships

My desire to dig you up,
magically, have you again

Like the crashing waves
that break over
the sharp and rocky jetty

I break
­čĺö
over the memory
of us
this one is so special to my heart,
I had to add one
small addition

STRING'S LAMENT
SCHEDAR Feb 12
You're reaching out to me
with words unspoken
they follow me through a
"burning house" ignited by sound
I hear you clearly
I feel you loudly
Your instrument lies horizontally
upon a table
Passionate fingers softly caress the lamenting strings
plucking a haunting melody
lingering to extinguish the lonely
cinders that dance upon thin air

Still,  the steady flow of vibration mourning the loss....

Cradle,
idling sun
upon horizon's we've met
tomorrow won't see us
if we flee from the set

Reach not into
the evening space
where, night then dawn
at a dew drop's pace

Golden tranquility,
stay suspended all night
If tomorrow doesn't catch us
there won't be a fight

Daydreamer's Star,
warmth of innocence thrives
If tomorrow can't find us
there'll be no loss of lives

long lost tears
SCHEDAR Dec 2020
My heart can only
feel his pain
as he cries out in silence
drawing
me close
with sketches

He flicks his hand across the paper
pretending to erase,
cleverly removing me
from his field of vision

Mother and son connection
a generous gift
though, even a white lie is too rich in color to keep hidden

Breaking into his creations
The flood gates open
Here come the long lost tears
My sweet B
Told you no walls
