Signposts

On Tenterhooks– In a state of uneasy suspense or painful anxiety.

I most think of tenterhooks in the middle verse. Being Bipolar leaves me with a sense of anxiety because I know that, even though I’m medicated, a depressive or a manic episode can show up at any time, with little warning.

The thing about being depressed is

That it slowly and sneakily tells you that

There is only one way that you can go.

Depression’s signpost has one direction

And that is down.

The thing about bipolar disorder is

That it convinces you that there’s no middle ground

And that ricocheting is your reality.

Bipolar’s signpost has two directions

And that is high and lows.

The thing about life is

There are more than one or two ways to be

And so many of them are good.

My signpost has an infinity of directions

And they are waiting for me.
