Shattered Thoughts

A dramatic monologue from short drama script End of the Argument. Arash has reached his emotional limit with his fiancé and physically restrains himself.

Arash: I wasn’t threatening you! I would never raise a finger to you. Never! You get me so worked up all the time, you know exactly how to push my buttons, it’s like a knife going in and I do question how I have the patience to be with you at times and I am concerned that maybe some day I will go over the edge and become a piece of shit, just like my old man and if that ever did happen, I’d kill myself, so when I say I need to leave, it isn’t because I can’t make it to the end of the argument, it’s because you take my emotions to a whole new level and I don’t like the way it makes me feel, this build up of anger and I get worried, scared even, that I won’t be strong enough to hold it together because all I want to do is break apart and shatter everything around me and I don’t want to be like this!

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!
