A poem that deals with the pain of the broken relationship and the importance memories play.

I Don't Have Time To Be Happy 

I don't have time to think about you 

I'm to fast in covering the pain 

nothing you can do effects me now 

when I heard Memphis Murphy 

singing that lonesome song 

tears welled up I sheared them away 

we always thought romance a cliche 

never was going to have a "song" 

and yet we did anyway 

take this your shirt back 

it's the one we spilled the gravy on 

remember that picnic where we made love 

take it back I don't have the time to clean it 

you want a special autograph collage 

and here it is don't you see I don't have time 

take it and never let me see it again 

and while you're at it take your carebear collection 

and all those fancy toys you once owned 

I remember staying up playing video games all night long 

take these memories away from me 

my time is entirely to ate up with misery 

take my heart while you're at it too 

I don't have time to give it to another
