A white butterfly, which has seen, has felt the light, flutters on the glass. Do not suffer! Fly away from here! The night has sent shadows for you. Look! The blinded moon has risen over you from the realm of dreams. Forget my artificial light! There is heat in it, but there is no warmth. Turn around! There, thousands like you are falling from the sky on the flowers, covering the sweet jasmine with a silvery white stole. You will get tired. I know. So sorry! An invisible spiral of seconds will slowly turn into dawn. The morning will bloom as always. You will not be in it. I'll be there. Your desired light bulb will turn into dusty glass. Do not flap your wounded wings anymore!

I loved the imagery you created with your words, it was so beautiful. It felt like there was so much depth in your words, it was so wonderfully crafted.

You paint a picture remarkably well with those words.
