Paraprosexia is the inability to pay attention to any one thing (a state of constant distraction).

A Gothic Poem by Robert Maturin

images (6)

The limner’s art may trace the absent feature,
And give the eye of distant weeping faith
To view the form of its idolatry;
But oh! the scenes ‘mid which they met and parted;
The thoughts–the recollections sweet and bitter,–
Th’ Elysian dreams of lovers, when they loved,–
Who shall restore them?
