Runway – Screenwriting

Hi All,

This is the first time ever I have tried anything like screenwriting. I know screenwriting is far more technical and I know nothing about it. However I was so excited to materialize my thoughts which had been nagging enough for a while. I hope you would like it. This is the screenplay of my latest would-be-song called “Runway”. You can read it separately from here – RUNWAY

So here we go –

[Scene 1:]

At around 12:30 in the morning, a guy is sitting on couch, watching an action thriller. As when camera displays the close-up of the female character in movie while she is fighting. He gets himself high into his thoughts and the face of his lost girlfriend starts appearing… In agony he switches off the TV and starts singing –

[Verse 1:]

I see you in every movie I see,

I am afraid of switching on my TV,

He is shuffling through the music records while images of her in his thoughts are running; he puts off the idea of playing any of it.

Every song reminds me of you,

He goes into the kitchen to make coffee and gets lost when he looks at the coffee mug which was gifted by her and how that mug had been a part of their happy memories –

You are all over anything I do,

He throws the mug on the floor where it gets shattered into pieces and shouts in agony running his fingers through his hair,

It has been enough,

I don’t wanna feel the love,

It has been torturing,

I don’t wanna sleep; don’t wanna see the day,

[Scene 2:]

Its dark, clouds are all over in the sky, roaring and lightening all over but not raining. He is running on a deserted runway, where nothing else is visible only a light flashing far away at the other edge of the runway. He is running and particles of his body are burning, they keep breaking and fading away behind him –


If there is a runway,

I wanna take off from it all,

I wanna run away,

[Scene 3:]

He is lying on bed, not willing to sleep, switching on and off the night lamp-

[Verse 2:]

Stop coming in my dreams,

That’s the reason I’m afraid to sleep,

I don’t want to wake up,

When it feels so empty,

And I feel so rough,

I don’t wanna feel the love,

Rolling his hands on the other side of the bed –

I am scared of the mornings,

When I don’t find you beside me and I pray,

[Scene 2:]:: Continue

[Chorus:]:: Repeat

[Scene 4:]

Still lying on the bed, rubbing his left side of the chest, feeling the heart beat –

[Verse 3:]

I wish this heart to be numb,

Rolling his hand on his head, grabbing the memories and throwing out from his brain which are melting away on the floor with smoke –

Brain to be stopped,

Every memory of you,

To melt away,

Shouting and crying, wiping away his tears, his shirt is half wet and so is the bed sheet –

Nothing else I need,

I want freedom,

I am afraid of love,

I won’t dare falling again,

[Scene 2:] ::Continue

[Chorus:] :: Repeat

I wanna run away…

He reaches at the edge of the runway, takes off and starts flying. He gets disappeared into pieces leaving spark behind which disappears in few moments too.
