The Letter of Sorrow

The Letter of Sorrow

A Stage Play by Jonathon Wood

When Robby finds himself about to lose his entire world, Jessica, he seals his fate with one final letter. (1-2minutes)

Dearest love,
I know you don't miss me, but I miss you. It's been four days since we've spoken, since I was able to hear angels calling my name. I fucked up so bad, I admit it. I broke your heart and it's killing me inside. I never meant to betray you, abandon you, cast you into my own forsaken abyss of shadows. I never wanted you to become some forgotten memory lingering in the back of my mind. What happened to us? How did we reach such a moment of desperation that I would even contemplate such a remorseful act. Maybe nothing happened, maybe I just...I just... I don't know. It's all my fault I'm on the verge of losing everything, and I don't even know why I did it. All I know now is I can't afford to lose you, not now. Please, not now. Not when I'm so desperately alone. At least be with me until the end. Until the isolation and desperation have faded. I can't, no, I wont live without you. You're all that is just, you're all that is perfection, you're all that is good in my world. I fucked up, and I'm sorry. Please forgive me, give me another chance. That wont happen though, will it? It's getting late now, and I'm not growing any younger. I can't even utter the three simply words I wish so dearly to tell you. Ten seconds to midnight. Five. Four. Three. Two. One.
