women of mythology - lilith
first wife to walk in the garden of eden, she was willful and possessed a mind of her own. she refuses to submit to adam’s commands and desires, to be a slave to a man that does not see her as a partner but another one of his flock, she flees the home she was placed in. cursing the husband that tries to dominate her.
he sends three angels to drag her back, to force her compliance and make her docile, but she is strong, she is fury, she is defiant. she curses the winged messengers, sending them back to their father to deliver the news, lilith will not be a servant, she will not rest on her knees and lay on her back for any man.
the fallen angel, dark and willful as she is. this is who she chooses as her lover, and brings forth demons, darkness, and dread into the world. a world where men and women are not equals, yet they fear her name. lilith.
