Unrequited

Why do you taunt me?
You’re hiding from me
Behind every door
And in every room
I love you so
Why do you taunt me?

I seek for you daily
But you’re just out of reach
You show yourself slightly
And then hide again
Always so close
I seek for you daily

You’re hiding still
In the kitchen by the sink
Or in the living room
Beside the couch
Under the coffee table
You’re hiding still

I have no comfort
It’s under every pile
Of papers unfiled
Or books unread
Or dishes undone
You taunt me still
I have no comfort

I’m doomed to a life
Of daily cleaning
And constant decluttering
One day I’ll find you
For maybe a minute
But no longer than that
I’m doomed for a life

Of housecleaning!
