Gancanagh

Come sit beside me
Under the crisp night sky
Where the world is ours
Only ours alone
And the howling of dogs
A faint ticking of the hours
As time erodes and withers
Whilst I speak to your spirit
In a language only you understand
Let us sit

This night our souls shall entwine
As I choose to bed in the pith of your being
Warm and dizzy with the heat of your heart
Seduced and content in the light of conversation
Home is here under the layers of skin and cotton
Let my embrace be the roof above your head
The chambers of my own heart
The rooms in which you lie
Find rest within my kiss
Until morning comes with dew

Let us resist the rising Sun
Where we shall lament the loss
Of the comforting dark
As the Light of Day robs us from our embrace
You will remember me
For all your Tomorrows
Shall forever be altered
Because of a single soulful kiss
All the following nights shall be empty
Because you shall pine for me

Artist's Description

Gancanagh (from Irish: Gean Cánach meaning “love talker”) is a male sidhe (faerie) in Irish mythology that is known for seducing human women.
The Gancanagh are thought to have an addictive toxin in their skin that make the humans they seduce literally addicted to them. The women seduced by this type of faerie typically die from the withdrawal, pining away for the Ganacanagh’s love or fighting to the death for his love.
