A Different Realm

I wrote this a few days ago in fifteen minutes of hyper-focused creativity. I really hope you enjoy it! I am always attempting to show the intricacies of our galaxy minds!


The ribbons weave inside my mind
Cascading waterfalls of ideas
Flowing like streams of possibilities
swiftly past the jagged rocks
of vicious uncertainly

My mind concocts a daydream
as night slowly sweeps its aura of dark
across a luminous night
Only she sees
where glittered ceiling protects heaven
and loses bubbles of ancient wisdom
Did she ever grasp those lost ideas?

Wisdom stained in black and white
My brain breathes life in colour
A heartbeat of perpetual longing
for others from a realm
of lost silence and tangled dreams

She studies golden sunset
but yearns for pirate’s hoard
Stolen wishes hidden within
plain view of reality
Only her simplicity grows on
a sentient tree
A woeful explorer
in a desert of doubt
Did she ever find that lonely key?

Everything moves, yet all is still
Creativity holds the code
Though it’s rusted still in pleasant autonomy
Suffering monotony
Cherishing moments of flickered emotion
only she sees
with her eclipse
of perfect
realisation

All is connected
yet
all is free
Her mind weaves spirals of circular time
Around a linear world trapped in rules
Books slammed shut in the face of fantasy
Lateral concepts thrown deep into fires
of cerebral meaning
Did she ever draw the clue?

Shapes are destiny, time is frozen
Though words hold force
against a primitive foe
Where lines find endings and voids begin
A perilous prison
of lost
innovation

Why does she warm in the time of cold?
Antarctic air blows ever stronger
But she feels no pain
Alone, neglected by human endeavour
She shines like a beacon
But is lost in the blackness
Far beyond the sight
of human vision

Hello, I’m Annabel and my mind is like a galaxy. Diagnosed with ADHD during lockdown, since then I have made it my mission to inspire other ADHDers to see the positives of living with a ‘galaxy brain’ and educate people about what it is like living with ADHD. I run my own tutoring and coaching business, helping many children with ADHD and dyslexia, and have always been an avid amateur writer and artist. Recently, I have written a children’s book which highlights the positives of ADHD: ‘Hadie & Adah’ and I will continue to promote my drawings and blog posts – focusing on positivity and creativity – in future. I truly am proud of my galaxy mind!
