The Temptation of Caine

found at:
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
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
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.
