Where My Love Has Gone

Love was an emotion I felt
When the world was new.

But now
I am a ball of double-sided tape
Which rolled under the couch.

Untouched and forgotten
I am covered in the debris of my surroundings
Hair, dust and food.

I hear the passionate couple
Copulating above me.
The couch vibrates.

Sullied and sticky
I no longer adhere to the floor
But am stuck to the couch above.

I felt love once, twice, many times.
As an adhesive strip
How do I return to the roll?
