The Couch

Do you know that feeling when you're super exhausted...tired and hungry
When you get home, and just go bonk on the couch
Too exhausted to move
Hungry
But you know there is nothing to eat
Thirsty as hell,
All that's left to drink is water. Plain H2O
You reach out for it, and drink a small sip.
You feel empty, and this little gulp helps a bit.

At first you decide to rummage through your supplies,
Look for something
Anything
To re-energize yourself.
You find nothing
Except that you're more exhausted now

You go back to the couch

You don't move because moving would mean exhausting a bit more of the precious little energy you have left

And just lie there, taking occasional sips of water.
