Leanan Sidhe

The Lhiannan-Shee (lannan-shee), or Leanan Sidhe (lan-awn shee), "The Faerie Lover" is radiantly beautiful to the man she enchants, but is invisible to all other mortals. Once a mortal has known her caress, all other women pale in comparison. She is a dark muse, using her power to make the creativity of a lifetime burn through her victim in a great rush. She feeds on this lifeforce leaving a wasted shell behind. This lifeforce enables her to keep herself beautiful and to weave her spells upon yet another mortal. The seduction is deadly but the human soul experiences untold ecstasy.

The Leanan Sidhe is said to reside under the Irish Sea off the eastern coast of Ireland, and roams the Isle of Man at night, seeking a lonely young man to bring her Dark Inspiration.

**The Song of the Leanan Sidhe**

I am a creature of the Fey
Prepare to give your soul away
My spell is passion and it is art
My song can bind a human heart
And if you chance to know my face
My hold shall be your last embrace.

I shall be thy lover...

I am unlike a mortal lass
From dreams of longing I have passed
I came upon your lonely cries
Revealed beauty to your eyes
So shun the world that you have known
And spend your nights within my own.

I shall be thy lover...

You shall be known by other men
For your great works of voice and pen
Yet inspiration has a cost
For with me know your soul is lost
I'll take your passion and your skill
I'll take your young life quicker still.

I shall be thy lover...

Through the kisses that I give
I draw from you that I will live
And though you think this weakness grand
The touch of death, your lover's hand
Your will to live has come too late
Come to my arms, and love this fate!

I shall be thy lover...

I am a creature of the Fey
Prepare to give your soul away
My spell is passion and it is art
My song can bind a human heart
And if you chance to know my face
My hold shall be your last embrace.
