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

I have to say this poem is indeed amazing. It paints a very vivid image. Although it may not be about vampires it suggest that through the extremely descriptive words. This gives the peom a mysterious effect causing an increase to one's enjoyment.
