The Villain in Your Story

The Villain in Your Story

you are so good at provoking and bringing out
the worst, the ugly, the crappy me.

when i’m bad, i’m really bad and when i’m mad,
i’m really mad.

then, there you are perfectly playing the victim role.

and i, without a doubt become the villain,
the arrogant, the sarcastic, the irrational.

when truth is you pushed me to the edge ‘cos you know this will happen.

when truth is you want this, you want me to be the villain in your story.

you want to make it look like you are being attacked all the time.

i guess you’ve won.

you are so good at provoking and bringing out
the worst, the ugly, the crappy me.

  8. So true! And we’ve all known someone like that. I try to help them…as I think they must have pain and hurt in their past/or current life. But, usually I eventually find out it’s best to keep my distance or move on, away, beyond them…life is too short to let them bring me down. I guess we should learn from them and then move on.
    The sad part is they always find someone or more someones to treat badly. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Being painted the villain is never good, especially when you know it isn’t the truth or at least not the whole truth. Sounds like a very toxic relationship. My advice: RUN!
