On Edge

In this dramatic female monologue, Roxy talks to her friend about the trouble she has been experiencing with her boyfriend.

Roxy: The smallest thing sets him off.  He has no patience whatsoever.  The day can be going great, we can be having the most fantastic time and then it all changes if the slightest thing doesn’t go his way, or something sets him off which isn’t that big a deal and then we go down the negative rollercoaster.

It wasn’t like this in the beginning.  I don’t understand.  I’m not sure but it seems like the more I know him, the less I like him.  Everything is always so perfect in the beginning, almost like a love fantasy and then as time moves forward, things deteriorate.  I don’t know why and it’s so frustrating.

Does true happiness really exist?

All of my past relationships have started out amazing and then slowly became shit.  Is that how it’s supposed to go?  Is that love?

Maybe it’s me.  Maybe I’m the one who has the issues.  Maybe I’m the one who creates all the drama and is the cause for things going sour.  Maybe I am not fully equipped to ever have a happy relationship.
