Death of the Drama Queen

They gathered to say goodbye
Shell shocked and wondering why

The great Drama Queen was dead
She was found that way in bed

Didn’t think she’d follow through
But her frustration grew and grew

No one could hear her heart’s cry
Now they stood wondering why

How could she take her own life?
She...the good mother and wife

For her, the “drama” was real
She chose to die not to feel

That moment, life’s closing act
She’d left her greatest impact

This life is only a stage
Scripted drama on each page

Done “acting” she now could rest
Drama Queen played THIS role best

    A hopeless dramatic? I reckon so. Life sets the stage...and we set the mood. I hope you've had a pleasant weekend, Eileen.

    Drama, indeed! This had a lot of truth it. Brushing off someone's personality as hopelessly dramatic (and maybe it's true, but that drama is as powerful and real as the person wants it to be) isn't a good idea. I can't fathom feeling this way, but I feel for those that do... I only pray they have to courage to say no to the temptation... it's one of the few things you CAN'T walk back from...

    ;) Oh Timothy...you are so insightful! I tend to be dramatic...and I speak from experience....one day...they will realize what THEY call dramatic, is real life for me! ;)

    So glad you are back safe and sound, Richard. Vegas and Kelowna...same difference, but somehow it just seemed like you were far away. Good to have you "back!"

    Lost in her own act without ending..That really describes a drama queen playong the victim but never is..Well penned-Creative thoughts .

    Well, this is more than that, Charma...the Drama Queen isn't being that way on purpose...that is who she is.

    Disturbing and beautiful at the same time, Eileen...I like how you refuse to judge her for her act which shows much insight and wisdom on your part - Tim

    Thanks, Tim........a piece of my life in this one. We never know if the Drama is real or make believe, but we must always give the benefit of the doubt! ;)

    Fantastic job, Eileen! I agree with Drake - very catchy title, and you handled this topic very well. "No one could hear her heart's cry" - That line sums it up beautifully, I think.

    Yes, Heather....and that line is so true. It shocks me sometimes at how selective we are in our hearing....

    The Drama queen chose wrong. It is a shame when people choose a permanent solution for a temporary problem. Catchy title and cleverly scripted.

    Thanks for your words, Richard. They mean a lot to me. I believe there is grace even for those who choose this solution.
