Arash’s “Restraint” Monologue

In this Arash’s dramatic monologue Restraint, Arash does his best to refrain from having an emotional outburst.

Arash:  Why is it that every time I try and communicate with you properly, you say something to me that pisses me off?  Why can’t we just talk normal?  Why does it always have to be about zinging each other?  

  Look, I just want to be able to speak to one another like adults; just want to be capable of having a conversation, to hear both sides and to get along while we work out a solution to our differences.  Is that so difficult?  Is it?  Can you be with me on this and stop the name calling and the swearing and all the other crap that comes with the negativity because we will get nowhere in this relationship if things continue this way.  Are you with me?

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks!
