"Alone in the darkness I can hear the sweetest voice
whispering words of surcease and I rejoiced!
Who would dare speak to one so condemned as I?
Do you know of my most wicked crime?"
"I'm known as Lilith, your fahter's first bride
Like you I'm cursed to dwell in the shadows of night."
"How can one survive here in the dark groves forlorn?
Without a sole companion or a friend of some form?"
"But there are many companions in my infinite kingdom.
Through magick and sorcery I've found my freedom."
"I was cold and she clothed me,
I starved and she fed me,
I was mournful yet she loved me.
I shed bloody tears and she made them
disappear she kissed away my fears.
Her powers I could see would forever
set me free I begged her to awake me.
Her blood, sweet as wine, as I drank
she would sigh then I closed my eyes.
Into the dark I fell and fell a deepest abyss
surrounded by obscurity a price for her gift.
Out from the frigid blackness came a radiant glimmering light
revealing the flaming archangel known as Michael"
"Cursed son of Adam, indeed His mercy is great
bow thy head and repent thine sins now before it's too late."
"Not by His grace but my own,
I choose to live with pride
your "merciful" God disgusts me
his Kingdom infested with lies."
"You sad irreverent fool have thee no shame?
Tou shall forever fear the light of the Living Flame."
"On the morning by silver wing Raphael came to me and said
Abel did firgive me not by his (forgiveness) but mine own
for darkness is my home.
I walk alone, my skin would burn by the sun's rays I learned
and the dawn had returned to earth below
I did run seeking shelter from the sun
the endless night of Caine had begun.
When I awoke, Uriel appeared
the reaper with black wings
but thrice denied his grace
hence, my blood-curse begins & hellip."
