Original Writing: Dramatic Monologue

Monologue of a Disturbed Personality

The light is bright. Too bright in fact. Oh, wait a minute it’s the walls and ceiling. This room is way too bright. The ceiling looks like it reaches to heaven.

        A doctor opens the door and walks slowly over to me.

“The Surgery went very well, Elizabeth” he said to me, dressed in his overalls that are as white as snow and the clouds up above that I long to see.

“Lizzie, Lizzie….I have to warn you, it could just be a delayed reaction but we just don’t know the cause. You are going to have to go about life as normal. The only difference is your face. I can offer you counselling.”

I have been discharged. The neighbours stare. A young boy came up to me and asked “Excuse me, do you want me to help you cross the road old lady?”
