An Ongoing Robbery

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.
