"Steam Train" by D. M. Larson

Monologue from the published play "My William Shatner Man Crush"

Please request permission before using this monologue from and include the title in your request "Steam Train."


Do you ever feel like you're stuck on the front of a steam train going a million miles an hour?

Flying down the tracks... so out of control. One slip and you'll be crushed into a million billion pieces.

The pressure... Incredible pressure ...your chest pounding so hard your heart wants to break free....

But you feel a little thrill don't you? And you realize it's better than the nothingness of your life before.

Is it true? What kills you makes you feel alive?

Suddenly you realize this could be the most exciting moment in your life... Flying free down the tracks... An adventure... No clue where you're going or if you'll survive ...but you're living. Really living.

Is that why those stars do that... Do something dangerous and wonderful... So explosive... that it will eventually destroy them... Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Michael Jackson, Robin Williams... Riding the steam train to their death... Screaming with life?

There's no turning back... No middle ground. Once you live... really live... there's no way to go back again. No brakes or safety nets... No getting off the runaway train.

So instead of being afraid, instead of seeing it as an end to life... You scream...

Bring it on steam train! ... Make me live!
