"DESTROY ME" by D. M. Larson - Monologue from published play "Teen Angel" ISBN-13: 978-1511481557

Available on


I think I've made a big mistake.

I'm afraid memories are as much my enemy as they are yours.

I am remembering something... Something I wanted to forget
I was in a car accident...
I was drag racing. Right out there.


We came up on a curve. I cut the other guy off. There was this truck. Both of us swerved into each other and then the truck hit us...

(Upset. He stops.  Then he turns angry)

I shouldn't remember... I can't. I must stop remembering.


No, don't remember, please. We can't or we'll be trapped here.

Guilt is a form of memory. Why do I have to feel this way? Make it stop.

I don't seem to be able to do anything. My memories are like a weight on my whole body.

(Crouches down as if in pain)

They'll destroy me... And trap me here forever
