I see a shiny box

Colorful pictures flashing

My life swirling

Before my eyes

Everything is a dream

An alternate life

To live when mine

Gets too harsh

A fantasy world

Created just for me

To which I can retreat

And pretend for an hour

My life is picture perfect

A land where happy endings

Happen every day

And if something is sad

You just switch channels

And find another land

But happiness is addictive

Once you've found it

So make sure that life

Doesn't pass you by

As you sit entranced

By the little box

That leads to places

Dreams are made of
