once you said,
i love you.
then you slapped me,
you punched me,
you shouted at me,
you called me bitch.
i want to kill you.
what is love?
trailer: do you love yourself?
Do you love yourself?
written and interpreted by Loredana Denicola
"Do you love yourself?" is a 9-minute monologue, part of love, sex and relationships video-photographic documentation project.
I wrote it while I was in a "love" relationship with my ex-boyfriend that then, over time, became violent.
The monologue comes from a state of confusion, despair, anxiety and the impossibility of coping with the situation in which I lived. Unanswered questions crowd my head.
Photographs have power, stories have power.
