The Mirror Has Two Faces Monologue
|The Mirror Has Two Faces by Richard LaGravenese|
I really want to apologize. I settled for something that I didn't want. I thought I could live with that. I thought it would be enough, but I lied. I lied to myself. I lied to you. To tell you the truth, I think your theories about relationships are total bullshit. I believe in love and lust and sex and romance. I don't want everything to add up to some perfect equation. I want mess and chaos. I want someone to go crazy out of his mind for me! I want to feel passion and heat and sweat and madness! I want valentines and cupid and all the rest of that crap. I want it all.
And I want to thank you. I want to thank you, Gregory, because you forced me to look at things that i was too lazy or too scared to look at. I mean, can you believe that all this time I kept up this ridiculous fantasy that you, like Alex, would fall in love with me? I know It was unfair of me to think that you would change. I know you feel very strongly about your beliefs, and I appreciate that. I know I broke our agreement. It's just that I fell in love with you. I know, stupid, right? But I don't want you to feel bad, because I'm not in love with you anymore. Suddenly, dinner doesn't seem like such a good idea, does it?
