Alice would try to talk to him, but he would get a faraway look in his eye and she knew he was off in some mental magic swiriling ship and not really with her.

When asked about the sad ending of their relationship she would quietly explain, "Focusbrokeus."

Etymology: focus: attention to a particular point or detail, have a direction in life + broke: broken + us
