April thirteenth a friend messaged me this:
I need a writer! LOL
My agent has submitted me for an audition where I have to video tape an original monologue …
Cant be anything that’s already published….
Wanna write me a monologue?
First word in the monologue has to be “Oh sorry”
“Oh it’s you”
April fourteenth I wrote this-
Oh, it’s you, it’s you first and foremost, forever and ever. In earliest morn before I’m awake, when sky’s cotton candy it’s your hand I take.
You lie there sleeping while my mind’s running free. Free from the bonds of time and space, free from the years that ravage and take. We rise from our bed to bailar de amor, our steps light and lithely and we’re young once more. The aches and the pains that ravage with time are in the far distance and we are sublime. The tongue, that once teased body and mind with words so loving and thoughts divine that tongue too is dancing as pulses advance, I feel your breathing and know you’re entranced.
My hand crosses our bed and by Braille I find you, and there in the twilight my heart sees what’s true. I see the hand that once was a boy’s, the hand of caress, embrace and command. That hand’s what I see, not hand of old man.
The years are short, while days are long, we’ve toiled together, our loving cup’s strong. You are my alpha, omega and tau, you are resurrection and what’s needed now. Together we’ve grown from groaning to grunts but there’s no one else that I love so much. Oh, it’s you, forever partner and ever best friend and I’ll reach for your hand again at day’s end.
Turns out the monologues have to be 60 seconds or less which led to me writing this April sixteenth-
Oh, it’s you, first and foremost, forever and ever. As I awake neath pink cotton sky it’s your hand I’ll take. Your hand as lay sleeping, spirit running free, erased are time’s wounds from souls and bodies. Gone are the scars, time’s ravage of war, as from our bed step to bailar de amor. Feet light and lithely, youthful again, time’s aches and pains beyond our ken. Tongue again teases body and mind with loving words and thoughts divine. Our dance quickens, pulses advance, breath hot and heavy deep in love’s trance.
Shadow twilight I take the hand, hand of caress, embrace and command. You are my alpha, omega and tau, sweet ever after, knight of wedding vows. Together grown from groaning to grunts but no one else I love so much. Oh, it’s you, forever partner, ever best friend and I’ll reach for your hand again at day’s end.
It was fun to wake up to writing assignments!
