unrealistic happiness

There is no such thing as a happy ending. Life doesn't end flawlessly, but more abrupt like falling and losing all control. Happy endings only occur in movies, the 2 to 3 hour films that bring a bunch of people together, to not hate one another. But what if I'm just sitting on the couch? Guzzled up in a blanket staring into the scene playing in my eyes. This is where my deepest life lessons are learned, through the whimpers of withdrawal, whispers of madness, and where hyper love is seen. But it never reaches beyond the tv that lies in front of me, for only special certain people get to experience the type of life everyone wishes for. But the secret lies within the wanted. Don't grasp for what you cant imagine getting or what seems unpredictable. Hold on to the small tiny moments that make you crack a smile, these will be the ones that keep your life on the path, goal, want for succeeding to be "happy".
