English Monologue - Demons

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

English Monologue (Scene 1 - talking to himself) (Location - in his small enclosed white and black bedroom) Whatever you do, however terrible, however hurtful - it all makes sense doesn't it? Inside your head. You never meet anybody who thinks they're a bad person or that they're cruel. ... Don't you put the past in a room, in the cellar, and lock the door and just never go in there? Because that's what I do. ... Then you meet someone special and all you want to do is toss them the key, say open up, step inside, but you can't because it's dark, and there are demons, and if anybody saw how ugly it was... I keep wanting to do that - fling open the door - let the light in, clean everything out. If I could get a huge eraser and rub everything out... starting with myself... What's wrong with me, why do I feel like this? I must be going crazy... Most of the time I hear strange and weird noises; little strange voices inside my head saying how much I'm becoming evil and wickedness again, again and over again- I think or I think I must be hallucinating...not too sure. Not too sure what they exactly are, but honestly, I think it's to do with the demons. ...read more.

Where is this dream? How am I going to get this dream? Will I ever get this dream? I can't make it through all the things that are happening. You're supposed to be not afraid of what you are..and There's a..answer if you reach into your soul; and the sorrow that you know will melt away. I often also question myself; if this is my life with little strange demons controlling me...then I...I need to escape, I gotta get out- and breathe and the only way of doing this ending my journey of life. If I must faulter I've gotta be wiser-rrr....I think I'm going to oh, oh, oh...Indeed I really need this eraser to rub me out from this deep dark cellar so I can be released from the demons that lay upon inside me. Would you run and never look back? Would you cry, If you saw me crying? And would you save my soul, tonight? ...People say what you need to do is be thankful for the life you've got and stop lookin' at what you ain't got... How? Just that it's not possible for me? I can't...its- im..poss..ible. You just...can't!! I'll be able to start being' thankful for what I have got when I've been cured from this nightmare. The voices, the voices I hear inside...say consider them my prot�g�; instead of my life being gracious they violate me in a major way. ...read more.

Conclusion

So keep on getting on with your happy little lives and keep climbing to the top of your aspiration goals you've dreamt about from being little...just like I have. Forget me. Look in the mirror, praise on how wonderful and happy you are. Till the game ends, 'till the clock stops whilst I just sadly fade away. I'm not living my life, my life, I will never lose from what I've not had, I'm not living my life, my life...and..and..I'm not stopping, so live your life.! Without the strength I need to carry on I can't cast my fears aside..because I can't..I'm just not too sure if I can survive and fight any longer... Indeed; time must stop where the demons and spirits shall be released from my mind and I shall have free-will from heaven upon down on earth for the first time in my life...so live your life. The pills in the cabinet...it's time, it's time I must be released from this nightmare and take my own life and the demons can be torn out of me before they start belittling me once again. My life, indeed my life is now ending...I hope my friends and family understand, I did this for them...my best friend once gave me the best advice. He said each day's a gift and not a given right. Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind and try to take the path less traveled by. That first step you take is the longest stride...my life, goodbye my life. ...read more.
