He sat there on his couch. Watching a late night talk show. Drinking a glass of wine. Thinking of his impending. As long as he followed through with everything, he would only be there for two more days. He would only attempt to survive in this darkness for another 48 hours. But as he watched the show, a woman came on. A celebrity with a perky attitude. Beautiful, funny, intriguing. And As she talked about her life he thought, maybe I could go out west, make films, find her and get married. Then he realized she was married. And his thought process changed to, maybe I can find someone like her. And he nodded. Thinking that was a good plan. Then he took a sip of his drink. Used the restroom. And as he washed his hands he thought on this moment. This plan that he knew was silly, and mostly a joke. But it gave him hope. For the first time there was something good there beside him in the darkness. A small flickering light. And so he decided to follow that light. To continue on for now and see where it led him.
