This is a dramatic monologue from the scene by the same name from the play "When Mel Fell for Nell"
"FALLING AWAY FROM YOU"
by D. M. Larson
I miss you... so bad.
I always think I want to go somewhere but I am always sorry when I do. I thought I had to take a journey to find happiness, when in reality, happiness is at home with you. I guess the journeys make me appreciate you more. I journeyed so far, but the best thing was right at my door. Who would have thought that the best thing in the universe was only a walk away... no flying... no great voyage... just turn around and look...
(He turns hoping to see Nell, the woman he loves, but she isn't there)
That's something good, right? I'm just trying to find something good because I don't feel so good now.
I just feel... alone. I hate being alone. The plane lifts me up but I feel like I am falling.
(He falls to his knees)
Falling away from you.
