It keeps visiting

It keeps visiting
That anxious, antsy feeling
Breath held
Chest tight
Jumping out of the skin feeling.
Spinning out of control
No desire to do what's in front of me
Only want to spin
But not spin in a dance or a song
Spin, like a spiral, out of control.

What is this energy that possesses me?
What am I supposed to be doing I don't see?
Where am I supposed to be going I don't know?

Sometimes, I think it comes
because I've missed a lot of little clues
Like, just sit here five more minutes
Or just call that person
Or, do this little thing or that
Its small, insignificant and maybe
they all add up to the swirling,
spiraling energy.
