Spin Cycle: Drama

(Written to a certain person in my life)

Drama Drama Drama!
We are sick to death of all of your friggin drama!

You are drama, you feed off it and thrive on it.
If there was no drama in your life you would just create it.

You lie or fib to make the drama bigger and worse than what it is.
You put your thoughts in, as if they were facts.

You reach out your tentacles to whom ever you can.
Or those willing to listen to your made up version of the drama.

We know there really is drama, but we are getting weary of hearing it.
You try and try to get us to see things your way and bleed us for compassion.

The group is split and the gap is getting wider.
More and more are pulling away from you.

You are nearly the last on that side.
Your tactic for attention has left you scrambling to create bigger and better drama.

You hope this will draw us back to you with apologies for leaving you.
We are at times sucked back in, only to be bombarded with even more drama.

Your quest is not to fix the drama, but to further it along.
The drama is fixable ya know!

You fight, argue, scream and cry.
The group is tired of holding your hand.

If you disagree with this evaluation,
THEN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Stop being the victim and rise above the drama.

But I am sorry to say, the consensus it out.
It says you are addicted to drama and the attention it gets you!

The drama gets worse and worse as the years go by.
Yet you have shown no desire to step away from it.

We have all had our time with drama and have moved on from it.
No one can help you out of the drama you have created, except for yourself!

We have all tried over and over to be there for you and give of ourselves to you.
We are weary, worn out and drained.

Your drama has seeped into our souls and made them heavy.
We can't endure nor enable anymore.

And the Lord said...It is finished!

Excellent Spin! I think we all have a drama person in our lives...and some of which you can't entirely cut off, but distance is necessary!

Ugh. I have a person like that in my life as well. It gets old real fast and then, just like it seems you have done, tell them enough is enough!

Wow, there are so many facets of this Spin that speak about drama inciters perfectly!
Wonderful words, Heather!
You're linked!

Great Job Heather

Wow, I could apply this same Spin to a certain person in my life. Amazing how the drama in their lives tries to seep in to our own.

I've known a few people like that. Some of them accused me or anyone else available of creating the drama. Nothing was ever their fault.

@suzicate Thank goodness for distance or I would truly loss my mind.

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

@Lucy Glad to know you you would not be that way!

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

@kendrasue I think we all have that type of person in our lives to some degree or the other.

It truly does get old fast.

@Sprite's Keeper Thanks, it's funny how easy it was to write.

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

@Jimmy Thanks! I was feeling it soo much that it was easier than most posts.

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

@Mrsbear I think that is the purpose of dramatic people to always be in the limelight.

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

@Jen Oh YES! I sooo know that side of it too. This certain person is NEVER wrong!!
