A poem a day keeps the cobwebs off my keyboard.

Life's Too Short to Stop
All the years and no one heard,
Man I ain't getting nowhere.
I get up in the evening, And
life’s too short for me to stop.

We slip through the streets while everyone sleeps,
I’ll never let you sweep me off my feet
There’s certain things that should be left unsaid -
Man I'm just tired and bored with myself.

Hey there baby, I could use just a little help,
All you do is fill me up with doubt.
Oh, you know that I'd do anything for you,
Oh, baby, your time is running out.

The way we walk, the way we talk,
You can’t start a fire without a spark
We bite and scratch and scream all night,
Hey baby I'm just about starving tonight.

I check my look in the mirror -
We should have each other to dinner, huh?
Been there, done that, messed around,
I'm just living in a dump like this.

The way we walk, the way we talk,
You can’t start a fire without a spark.
We bite and scratch and scream all night,
Hey baby I'm just about starving tonight

All the years and no one heard,
Man I ain't getting nowhere.
I get up in the evening,
And life’s too short for me to stop.

Tick, tick, tick, tick on the watch.
