A woman with the softest skin,
And the sweetest voice.
But the coldest of all hearts.
Taunting men, destroying them.

Siren of the utmost beauty;
Gorgon from the deepest dark.

Your love.
Your vengeance.
Your cruelty.
Your strength.
Your beauty.
With which the greatest warrior is vanquished.
And the most skillful painter left with no more than empty parchment.

Writhing, turning, changing.
An ugliness from which men draw back in fear.
But a dance that tempts them, draws them near.
