Living with ADHDHer entire family is incapable of focusing.
They dash about like hummingbirds, their
Projects laid out, started, never finished,
Never put away, their doors and windows
Never closed, their grand ideas abandoned,
Even contradicted, in a flash. Keys are lost,
And also clothes, and dates forgotten.
Names and recipes pass out of mind as their
Spasmodic eyes are drawn to anything which
Moves. One loses patience with their
Fleeting thoughts. One learns there's
Nothing to be gained by analyzing what
They've said was of importance to them.
Everything is, equally. And nothing is.
I've married into such a hell, and, honestly,
Sometimes, I'd like to leave.
