"Waiting on the Bride" free monologue for male actor

"Waiting on the Bride"

a free monologue for male actor by D. M. Larson


LINC
Where is she?  The ceremony starts soon and she's not even here.

I hope something didn't happen to her.  The one time we don't go somewhere together and something happens. 

She's not calling or texting.  That's not good.  It might be bad.  Really bad. 

I wonder if someone can find out if there are any accidents near here.  I wish I hadn't picked that hotel for her across town.  I should have looked harder for something closer to the church. 

This is terrible.  I couldn't live with myself if something happened to her. I should have bought her a safer car.  I didn't check the safety rating when we bought it.  It's so small.  What if some big truck...stop...don't think about it.

Think about something else...

The honeymoon... The honeymoon will be so nice... A week away with no one bugging us.

What if she is late and we don't make the flight? What if she isn't coming at all? I know she loves me but I know this has all been so stressful ... Maybe it got to be too much for her... Does she really want to add all my baggage to her life?  I wouldn't wish my problems on anyone.  She's a pretty amazing person to put up with it all.

But maybe it got to be too much when thought about being stuck with my problem... Stuck... Forever... Scary words... No wonder she ran away...  I never wanted her to feel stuck... I wanted her to feel free... But she is like a beautiful song bird you have in your home but you decide it might be better for her if you let her go.  You open the cage but she doesn't fly away... She stays with you singing her wonderful song, making every day more beautiful with her presence... Is she here?  Thank you God she is here... I am getting married... I really am... Why am I so nervous... I can't wait to see her... She must be so beautiful today... I am a lucky guy... How did I get so lucky? I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with her.  I'm so happy she wants that too.
