Language Barriers
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Is it just me, or is it difficult to speak

To people of differing nationalities.

Experiencing horrid miscommunications,

Distorting perception from reality.


I hope I am the only one

so none must share my discontent

Of speaking with language barriers

Between differening continents.


Even if they speak the same language,

Some things don't translate.

Apparently some colloquialisms

Can cause most to miscommunicate...

Defeat
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Swift and exact
Words so glib
Your blade runs right between my ribs.

Blooded strike
Like lightning arc
You pull the blade and stick my heart.

Agonizing
Pulverizing
You dropped me to my knees.

Eviscerate
Eradicate
Bleed me over my unheard pleas.

Waiting wastes
time on hand
You can't afford to stop or plan.

I read in my mind
Racing are my thoughts.
Am I to finally say goodbye?
For surely, it appears
I have yet again
Lost.

The Scorned Shepherd
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
His own blood shall stoop the fires.

But how can we stay warm, when he cannot pierce the fold?

A martyr of this remorseless  race.

Discontent of avarice, sorrow one could never know.



To save the ones he hated most

One must prepare great sacrifice.

The bleeding table primed divine

The trusted ones must bear the knives!



So I must go

To save all I know…

But at what cost?!!?!



Weakness!

Is the mark of desecration.

Sever one’s devotion; doom the pride of all surrounding.

This is the writ of – the dead resolution.

TAKE THIS KNIFE!

Now carve your brand upon my pride…







...



...



Can they truly be saved?

From the damnation for a thousand fold’s disgrace?

But who should hold the blame?

When the transgressions are of his own design?!



Weakness!

Is the mark of desecration.

Sever one’s devotion; doom the pride of all surrounding.

This is the writ of – the dead resolution.

TAKE THIS KNIFE!

Now carve your brand upon my –

PRIDE!!!!!

Untouchable
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
I've been broken by all of my

Betrayers, destroyed all my hope

Burned their bridges back to me,

Torches ignite, scorch the rope.

Subtle barbs of honesty,

Chew away at their being.

Take this curse away from me.

Silence me eternally!



Gnawed to the bone.

Abandoned – all alone.

I’ve lost all ties to that which was once known as my home.

Stripped of all resource.

Lost with no hope of recourse.

Gaze upon me now,

The Pariah!



Stab wounds upon my back.

Eyes beaten blue and black.

You shelter that which orders

Every devastating attack!

Reaching far out,

For help from those who ripped my heart out!

They lash whips at my will, breaking skin, my death has no doubt!



Gnawed to the bone.

Abandoned – all alone.

I’ve lost all ties to that which was once known as my home.

Stripped of all resource.

Lost with no hope of recourse.

Gaze upon me now,

The Pariah!

Praise and Deciet
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Behold the ringmaster of the reindeer games.

The trials set - all ****** to fail.

Hateful and manipulative thing

Champions shall ever prevail.

Bring this monster closer to god

And near your own martyr’s pit.

Sallow in self-pitied sorrows.

Take to your gold crucifix.


Build ‘em up - your epic disasters.

Spawn the grounds of the grandest battle.

Tyranny’s backlash not in mind

Subjects worshipping you like cattle.

Angels fall such tragic heights

Suffocated by this ruling *******.

Now these erinyes come to slaughter

Their manipulative treacherous master.



Concept of praise and deceit

Dire as death and defeat.



Build ‘em up - your epic disasters.

Spawn the grounds of the grandest battle.

Tyranny’s backlash not in mind

Angels fall such tragic heights

Suffocated by this ruling *******.

Their manipulative treacherous master.



Appeasement of this demigod

Now all that is of consequence

Nothing else brings comfort now

All that exists is this false repentance.

You've become comatose

From this overdose

Of feelings of security,  trust that's clogged, turned varicose


There's a gravedigger like you don't know

Bury all your skeletons, but his ***** will make them show

He's never gonna let your demons be

Bury you in all your haunting memories...

Porcelain Doll
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
You think you have a clue, run the game, as you will.

I will humor, play along till I've had my fun and my fill.

First signs of your deceit, you'll soon discover your poise.

Not as simple as you planned, your pleas will be but noise.



Burn all in your path, a beautiful death knell.

Reap their hearts endlessly, send 'em all to hell.

Never the one to falter, to be on the fall.

You live callous, a blackened porcelain doll.



Pain be your outlet, you're a numb fatal conduit.

Do unto others, know how it goes, why think to quit?

Relieve the pain, **** runs downhill, does it not?

You refuse to be on bottom, though you cower from the top.



Burn all in your path, a beautiful death knell.

Reap their hearts endlessly, send 'em all to hell.

Never the one to falter, to be on the fall.

You live callous, a blackened porcelain doll.



Burn all in your path, a beautiful death knell.

Reap their hearts endlessly, send 'em all to hell.

Never the one to falter, to be on the fall.

You live callous, a blackened porcelain doll.

I'll bring you down to your hell, these demons you've amassed.

We'll have so much fun, punishment burns your  guilty ***.

Glass-heart
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Mind of steel

Heart of glass

Achilles tendon, again you bust your ***.



Sheets of petals

Bed of nails

The compassionate's downfall never fails.



Jeweler's eyes

Plastic blade

Aspiring to sculpt diamonds, rubies, and the sort.



Shaky nerves

Hands of clay

Always left broken, under the same damage report...

Crucified
Devin Bardot Mar 2014
I stand alone in the weight of motionless time

Upon my bluff, to witness all these godless crimes.

Hearing the victims screaming out all their helpless cries

Ever enduring yet all they really wanna do is die.



No more biding time, gather the crowds

Adorn these criminals with their neck-crowns

Their time to say hello to hell is right now.



No pain has left a life so unsatisfied

Nor struck so vicariously inside my mind.

All the rage, all the hurt builds up inside

Dreaming the day all these villains will be crucified.



No more biding time, gather the crowds

Adorn these criminals with their neck-crowns

Their time to say hello to hell is right now.

The Keeper of Souls
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
You burn the spoon, and it chases the flame

Soothingly lets out whispers of your name

Your nose tingles at the scent of the fuel

A little diesel and goodbye to all of life’s rules…



Try as you might

You won’t win the fight

This love’s taken its toll

I’m too deep inside

You live for the ride

With the keeper of souls



Make me gone, so you can carry on

I’m the venom coursing through your veins

You try to run but there’s nowhere to hide

You’re already addicted to the pain



Blurred all the lines

In for one hell of a time

You’re losing control

Creeping inside

Surrender your life

To the keeper of souls

Devin Bardot Mar 2014
Hatred looming overhead

Laughing as you cry

A void pierces your fragile heart

Your tears reflect a dead black sky

Shaken...

Broken...

Taken...


Hide your tears, silence the pain

Bury all your fears in shame

Your strength is snuffed as your innocence is claimed



Captor looming overhead

Be nice and quiet he said

Bite your tongue and close your eyes

Pray take him away tonight



Hide your tears, silence the pain

Bury all your fears in shame

Your strength is snuffed as your innocence is claimed


.
.
.


Hide your tears, silence the pain

Bury all your fears in shame

Your strength is snuffed as your innocence is claimed



The end of fears, death of pain

Display all your tears restrained

Your blade knows all too well

Tonight he’ll remember your name

Entropic Contingence
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
I extend my hand to you, hoping our

Combined strengths just might prevail.

You reach for it, bite down, blood on your mouth

Tastes succulent -  far from stale!


I'm at my limit, need a sign of hope - fighting not to choke!

I see the light of dawn, vanishing - all but gone!

Now what the **** can I do?



It seems you feed off my anguish, force-feed me

All your wretched entropy!

You never wanted out, just to pull me in,

Now I'm buried six feet deep!!!



I'm at my limit, need a sign of hope - fighting not to choke!

I see the light of dawn, vanishing - all but gone!

Now I haven't got a ******* clue!



You think your substance will sustain you but,

In time they will all fail.

Still compared to the thoughts racing through my

Mind, this event will pale.



At last, I break.

At.  The.  Seam.

You've taken.

All.  From - Me...



I'm at my limit, need a sign of hope - fighting not to choke.

I see the light of dawn, vanishing - all but gone.

Now what the **** can I do?

I'm at my limit, need a sign of hope - fighting not to choke.

I see the light of dawn, vanishing - all but gone.

Now I haven't got a clue!



I am undone - now, all because of you,

And on this day I must swear...

I ******* HATE YOU!!!!

Dreamer
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Her mind spaces out through a broken glass

An inverted dream catcher, only nightmares last.

Her mind stays racing, always running so fast

Trapped in her own mind, haunted by her past



She screams and cries

Of the dreams inside

Her broken home’s history never lies



Seeking so much more

Coked out on the floor

No hope left in store

She’s lived it all before – And will again…



Shattered this time

No more room for pride

Nearing the point of ending her life.




Seeking so much more

Coked out on the floor

No hope left in store

She’s lived it all before – This nightmare never ENDS

Gone
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
What I hoped I could let you see

was the warming person you brought out of me.

What I wanted, yearning thus far

is not what became of who we are.

What cruelty this world made true,

I would shut out completely -caring only for you.

What she did - so callous that knife,

I would have gladly re-payed unto her life.

And now what all trust we had built upon

is a slowly fading dream - all but gone.

Cauterized
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
What are you? Contesting me.

You are nothing, and firsthand you shall see.

Why even try? This power, you'll never be.

Run your blades, deepen the wounds

You'll never make me bleed.



These war scars are simultaneous of my wounds.

Immediately healed – for you never truly pierced me.

Impacts instantly cauterized, you enter My Hell now.

You were blind to try, prepare to die

This is gonna hurt, and all too soon I'll make you see.



Break the bones, slam the hammer down.

This impact is not fatal, as you've already found.

Foolish of you to try to face me alone, a lasting mistake.

I'll show you the power of infernos, your last gasp they take.

Rise
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Something has to change, this cannot remain the same.

The torments surround you, driving you half-insane.

Dig deep, find the will, revolt and show your drive.

You are worth a million, but they'll not take another life.



Rise now, stand and fight.

You're better than this, than surrendering your life.

Rise now, make it count.

Enemies unrelenting till you're down and out.



This is not what you're worth, not what you deserve.

Make them all pay, show them the strength of your nerve.

War has been called, you best not ignore the shout.

Take back all you were, devastate them – TAKE THEM OUT.


Rise now, stand and fight.

You're better than this, than surrendering your life.

Enemies unrelenting till you're down and out.

All Yours (Dead and Gone)
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
You had total control,

Engulfed my world.

Devotion and will,

All for you, sweet girl.

You contest the faith,

Pulling its elastic bonds.

Numbed senses lose awareness,

Next you know, I'm already gone.



Hide away, because I won't lie.

All I refrained from to keep you won't be held inside.

I never let go,

Never stood down.

Even when you doubted this love's pride.



This dies tonight,

As a fire in the new day's dawn.

You'll never appreciate your transgressions

Of the love now dead and gone.



**** all light around,

Bury all these lies.

Your concern never existed, so sever the ties.

I will deny you

Power to reside.

Dead and gone, be glad you left it as it died.



This dies tonight,

As a fire in the new day's dawn.

You'll never appreciate your transgressions

Of the love now dead and gone.

I move on, in discontent,

You left your mark, a third hip now razor-torn.

Another scar to carry in silence,

A lifetime of torment already worn.

When you look back, smile with those tears,

Of a past you proved unworthy to behold.

You killed the nice in me tonight,

Once all yours, bold and true,

Pay it no mind, it's all dead and gone.

Dreams
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Dreams compose upon imagination – enchanted
Yet some aren't privileged, sweet dreams not granted

Such is the tale of the one I love most
****** to be haunted by her past's ghosts

These nightmares are reminders of who controlled you
But the past can no longer hurt so long as I hold you

Your sleep, resting peacefully is our highest goal
And safety, the gateway, you granted as my role

I look forward to the day I can make you see
The time for hurt is over, just dead memories.

Weary King
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
This king has lost it all

Every ounce of his will to go on

He’s blown it all away

Even those who made me strong



So save your breath

There’s nothing left

Unity’s separated.

This house of glass now turned to ash.

A shattered reminder of all you hated.



So I deliver unto you

My bloodied low man’s song

So you’ll know how to run the show

When my key is left here, and you’re left all alone.







So take upon your helm

This gift, my royal crown

And take care of this castle

For you’re its sole resident now.



That key opens another door

Leading to my tomb

A conflicted mind now laid to rest

Shotgun and *****, to send me to my doom.

The End?
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
We all pass away from this world in time,

So live life as if this is your dying day.

Some believe life's not the end of the line,

Clinching both hands together as they pray.


Man made religion to keep world order

And write bestsellers that could withstand time.

To go against the Almighty Sorter,

You shall find your end has been redefined.


To think of death is a frightening thought,

If/where this endless afterlife resides.

If we live when our Armageddon's wrought,

You know I'll see you on the other side.


To what extent the end lies, know one knows,

Blind completely, to where the river goes...

These nightmares are reminders of who controlled you

But  the past can no longer hurt when I hold you



To sleep, resting peacefully was your highest goal

And safety, the gateway, you honored as my role








But all of this would soon be changed.

My entire life you had rearranged.

You drove me out, fearing all your scars,

Believed you can’t change who they said you are.



So set it off, set sail and the ship is gone.

Never will you rise above this. Never coming Home.

Bury all you knew, leave behind these withering bones.

This skeleton will await its time to lay to rest alone…








Hate me now, in every possible way.

Hate me to your dying day.

Hate me, even if it kills me,

Hate me ever more, to love me away…

Number Two
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Never topped your list.  I'm forever number two.

Say you will always need me, made me your special fool.

Burn the notes of all that was, all that could have been,

Your fire spat in my face, pain I'd hope you never meant.

Find another knight, your Champion is your demise.

The dreams of normalty to be buried beyond those pained eyes.



Take a look, it's gonna be something

You won't soon forget.

The future of what you've sown

I'll be sure you'll regret.

All comes crashing down

Sanity losing sight.

Ignored, all of your cries

Hoping to see me tonight.



Keep the dark bits close, don't you dare let go.

Memories of those evils none should ever know.

Three letters to the proper noun who acts so cruel

Bend to the wills infinite, crumble under their rule.

Torment live and inversely **** from within you,

No longer can you run to your number two.



Take a look, it's gonna be something

You won't soon forget.

Some Day
Devin Bardot Feb 2014
Some day, you'll live. I'll show you how,
But you must be patient for now.

Some day, you'll make them see
You're beyond what they want you to be.

Some day, you'll sleep quite sound
No more haunting dreams around

Some day, you'll find your own.
He'll assure you you're not alone.

Some day, you'll live to be free
With Yours for eternity.

When you find where you are going,
You shall be relieved in knowing
This is where you want to be
With your special Safety.
