BREAKING HEART BY D. M. LARSON (FREE MONOLOGUE FROM A PUBLISHED PLAY)
You want to break up... sure... no problem... yeah, I wanted to break up too. I've been thinking about it from the day we met. This is a person I will need to break up with. But hey... you beat me to it. No hard feelings.
(shrugs and turns away)
(turns with a huge smile)
Sure! I'd love to be friends. That's the natural evolution of most relationships. Have a fling and then boom... friends. I'm sure some of the best friendships started that way.
I look forward to hanging out with you, buddy. Let's meet up and go to a football game or Hooters some time and hang out.
That would be GREAT!
What? Upset? No, I'm not upset. Why would I be... upset...
(starts to cry)
No, I'm not crying. I said, I'm not crying!
(bursts in to tears)
I don't want your pity. I don't want a shoulder to cry on. I want... to be left...
...ALONE! Don't you get it. I want to be alone!
(pauses... sadly reflects)
I've always wanted to be alone. I never wanted to get close to anyone. I never wanted us to get close. And I guess I was closer to you than you were to me.
Don't lie to me. I know you don't mean it. I don't want to hear any more lies! I don't want you to make something up so you can get out of this. I want it all laid out on the table.
I want to know the truth!
(long pause... cries... then manages to say)
I want to know why you are breaking my heart.
