Ladder of fear

One way to describe living

with bi-polar,

is to imagine someone climbing

excitedly onto a roof,

ready to clean gutters

and prune branches

so far out of reach.

Only then,

for that person to realise

they are afraid of heights,

trapped on the ladder

which helped them reach

their place on the rooftop.

They now are captive,

stuck with nowhere to go

and nothing to feel

but fear.
