Depression and anxiety Take away so much from me, That tag-team ongoing robbery Of happiness and peace. Plastering a smile on Not always real, joy gone Sailing ‘til an unknown dawn Reeling, waiting for storms to cease. Depression and anxiety Build a cell, and sell the key, Keeping me there hostilely, Not planning my release.
A poem for FOWC: Robbery, MVB: Plaster, and MLMM’s Saturday Mix: Double Take. I only used one of the two pairs of homophones (and “sail” but not “sale”) but included a different pair. I hope that counts. 🙂
P.S. This poem does not describe my current emotional state.
