"Please, do not scream",
He gently said
And pressed his hand
Upon my lips -
And I could sence
The bliss of death
Close by my searching
"Please, do not scream,
It's not your time,
So many more still yearn to die...
I just stopped by
To spread my wings -
To rest before -
- I'll fly...
* In Jewish lore, Samael is said to be the Angel of Death, the chief ruler of the Fifth Heaven
and one of the seven regents of the world served by two million angels; he resides in the
Seventh Heaven. Yalkut I, 110 of the Talmud speaks of Samael as Esau's guardian angel. In
Sotah 10b, Samael is Edom's guardian angel, and in the Sayings of Rabbi Eliezer, he is
charged with being the one who tempted Eve, then seduced and impregnated her with Cain.
