A brief note...
The Coming of Lilith

The Coming of Lilith


I was alone in the Darkness

And I grew hungry.

I was alone in the Darkness

And I grew cold.

I was alone in the Darkness

And I cried.16


Then there came to me

a sweet voice,

a honey voice

Words of succor.

Words of surcease.17


A woman, dark and lovely,

with eyes that

pierced the Darkness

came to me.18


I know your story. Caine of Nod."

She said, smiling.

"You are hungry. Come! I have food.

You are cold. Come! I have clothes.

You are sad. Come! I have comfort."


"Who would comfort one so Cursed as I?

Who would clothe me?

Who would feed me?"


"I am your Father's first wife,

who disagreed with the One Above

and gained Freedom in the Darkness.

I am Lilith.19


Once, I was cold, and there was no warmth for me.

Once. I was hungry and there was no food for me.

Once, I was sad, and there was no comfort for me."


She took me in, she fed me.

She clothed me.

In her arms. I found comfort.

I cried until blood

trickled from my eyes

and she kissed them away.20
