"Pieces of My Heart" by D. M. Larson
Dramatic monologue for male

What is she doing with him? I thought we had something special. She acted like I mattered to her.
Maybe she does that with all the guys. Or I'm just an idiot. A woman is friendly and I take it the wrong way. Why do I do this to myself? She's way out of my league. I have no clue why I even thought I had a chance.
I wonder what it's like to have a woman want you like that? Someone who wants you to hold them and kiss them and tell them you love them. Maybe I love too easily, that's why they're always breaking my heart, because I'm too eager to give my love away to any woman who smiles at me. I've given so many pieces of my heart away that I'm not sure there are any pieces left anymore.
I talk to animals because they listen... they watch my every word with their curious eyes and twitch their little ears in anticipation of my next breath. They let me ramble and never judge. When I am sad, they comfort me with a cuddle, and when I am happy, they dance at my delight. No one else has the patience or the time. Deep down i must be an animal too. I belong in the trees, whispering with the wind, babbling with the brooks, dancing among the dandelions. I am a creature with fangs and fur and feathers. No human can comprehend my primitive musings... I am mysterious, misread, misunderstood... by everyone except you.

a short monologue
I hold an empty shell to my ear and listen to the whispers of the world above. I yearn to understand and know what they speak about, what do they dream, what do they feel? I wonder if they care like we do and love as much. So many fear them, but I want to know them, I wish to unlock their secrets. Their whispers speak to me without words, calling me, drawing me closer. I hope to gain their trust and unlock their mysteries. I will show everyone there is nothing to fear. I will make them our friends and bring our people together. When we show kindness, we see kindness. When we show respect, we see respect. When we show fear, we see fear, and hate, and anger... I trust you... and you will learn to trust me... come... come into the waters and hold my hand... and I will lead you into our hearts.
