You need parallel music expressions.

The d' also requires a parallel music expression; the cross staff beam 
is produced because in 4/4, eigth notes are normally beamed by half bar. 
If you really don’t want the beam, you can either use manual beaming [] 
or adjust automatic behaviour by \set Timing.beamExceptions = #'() or by 
adjusting the default for 4/4 with \overrideTimeSignatureSettings. This 
is described in NR 1.2.4, ‘Setting automatic beam behavior’.

Try \shape.
