petite, bohemian, feminine goth lady, femme fatale, and sexy trollop of wild abandon...
prostitute of the streets, kept woman, whore...I am all of these...with total abandon

'in truth…she is a salamander, she is a nymph…she is a bacchante of the menelean mount.'

My Desires:

all of France, especially Paris
Italian men
sultry dark eyes
the seductive feel of black velvet and black silk
black garters and black silk stockings
the occult
blood vampirism
the night

The Siren

Siren: an enticing yet dangerous woman...

"What potions have I drunk of Siren tears..."
(Shakespeare, Sonnet 119)

In Greek mythology, sirens were sea nymphs with voices so sweet that mariners who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the beautiful nymphs sang.

In myth and folklore, similarities frequently exist between the stories about mermaids and sirens.

The naiad was a nymph presiding over fountains, wells, springs, streams, and brooks. Naiads could be dangerous: according to Greek mythology, Hylas of the Argo's crew was lost when he was taken by naiads.

Beware the siren's song of the temptress: bewitching, alluring, dangerous...

"So sweet and delicious do I become,
when I am in bed with a man
who, I sense, loves and enjoys me,
that the pleasure I bring excels all delight,
so the knot of love, however tight
it seemed before, is tied tighter still."
— Veronica Franco (Poems and Selected Letters)
