I can not sleep. I feel the noise of the wings of butterflies all night, I hear them through my window, sometimes I think they come specifically for me or want to tell me something. Every night they are here, maybe they are just waiting for something or maybe they want me to open the window but I'm too lazy to do it. I just stick with closed eyes listening as they move their wings. There are days when I can count how many are, I think today is 5, maybe 6, yesterday there were only two. I never know if they are the same, but the sound is exactly the same.
My mother told me when I could not sleep I had to try to think of something I like to do and I use to think that I was swimming until I fell asleep, but now they are all I can hear.
