The Temptation of Caine

extract from
The Temptation Of Caine
I wept blood. I caught the tears in a cup and drank them. When I looked up from my drink of sorrow, the archangel Gabriel gentle Gabriel Gabriel, Lord of Mercy appeared to me. The archangel Gabriel said unto me, "Son of Adam, Son of Eve. Behold the mercy of the Father is greater than you can ever know for even now there is a path opened a road of Mercy and you shall call this road [Golconda]. And tell your children of it, for by that road may they come once again to dwell in the Light." And with that, the darkness was lifted like a veil and the only light was Lilith's bright eyes. Looking around me, I knew that I had Awakened.
