Inertia

I feel like I'm stuck in place, standing on the spot. I can't get out of this hole that I'm in, I can barely muster the energy to even try these days.

I can see the ground above me. I can almost reach it, if I could just stretch up and jump. I need to learn how to climb out, but I'm swimming in treacle with lead weights on my feet, thrashing in slow-motion and drowning in a changeless, airless inertia.
