Someone Out There

In the drama monologue Someone Out There, a man sits on a park bench and talks to someone only he connects to from his mind.  

Someone Out There:  I don’t think I’m ever going to be the person I want to be…it’s in me, to be someone special, but I’m not so sure I have the will power to go all the way…call it a personality disorder or maybe that’s only some lame excuse to cover up my laziness.

Do you have the will power to go all the way?

I have a big heart but it doesn’t show up in time to rescue me whenever I’m in a bad way…those friendly demons always show up first and try to have their way with me but sometimes, I have my way with them.

You ever wish you could fistfight yourself?

(beat)

I’m so sick of myself, I don’t even know why I’m talking to you about it…you know something, I think you’re a real moron for even listening.  Don’t you have something better to do, FRIEND?

You wanna be my friend?!  Huh?  FRIEND!  A**HOLE!  Let’s be friends, let’s be friends forever and ever and ever.  Friend!  My magical friendly friend!  (blows a kiss)

(pause.)

Sniff your own ass.  (beat)  Whatever…my battle goes on…
