one minute short version


1 minute version of monologue


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.

(turns angry)

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.
