Beauty is the Beast This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Her skin, butter-cream by day, turns translucent by night.
Her hair, ebony black, shimmers like the night sky
But only to deceive those she encounters
Her lips, stained crimson from her victims
Eyes piercing blue, penetrating those who make contact with them
Her corpse, deemed immaculate by those she lures into her trap
She is the deceiver, the harlot of the hills
But cleverly disguised
The mark of the beast lies in her hands

Ooh...this was quite interesting. Gave me the impression of a succubus-like figure. Quite good!

Your descriptions are fabulous. The parable of all that shimmer is not Gold is one that is easy to overdo or misuse, but not here. The title is fitting to a T. Please give my poetry a quick look, I am always looking for constructive crticism!
