Monologue lovers gotta read this now. - May 20th 2014, 12:20 AM

Read this aloud, or make someone read it to you, or just read it in your head. Just get more and more dramatic as you go, just do it. It gives me chills every time. My friend was in the play "The Auditioners" a few days ago, and this was her monologue, and I actually started crying.

"Why are certain words full of magic?
In my throat is a small filament of tissue; it vibrates, and the air around it vibrates, and this quivering of molecules cascades across space to your ear, where the tiniest pelt of hairs picks up the frequency, and electrifies the vibrations, and races them to just the right place in your brain.
And you hear me speak.
What happens next? Words are vibrations that somehow make sense, and if I could only string together the right words, what then would not be possible?
If I could string together just the right combination of words, I could make someone laugh - not just a polite smile, but a great rolling spasm of laughter that shakes their body and opens wide their tear ducts and makes them howl with pure joy.
To most people on the planet, people who don't happen to speak our language, these words would just be random sounds - but falling on your ears, your mind and your body would respond. With just the right combination, of words, I could make you question your most secret beliefs, or weep uncontrollably, or rededicate your life to a cause you never cared about before.
If I could do that, if I could string together that perfect combination of words, and sounds and vibrations...

could I make you love me again?"

I love that! It's the kind of thing that you have to read a few times to really get the understanding. It makes you think, too.
