Where Did The Happy Endings Go?

I know not where they germinate
But they grow and grow
Tendrils of despair and woe
Bloom flowers of poison
And thorns of ill
Weaving into stories
Of darkness and dread
Suffocating fairy tales
And happily-ever-afters
The realities of life
That we drown in
Overrun with temerity
Of entitlement to be heard
To rule each aspect
Of thought
And all the steps
Of every single day
Deprived of sunshine
Words pouring like the rain
Down cheeks
Into heartbreaks and hopelessness
Seeds of this sadness
Dispersed on the wind
Of this depressed writing
Choked by the vines
Of attempted happiness
