Beauty is the Beast MAG

By Bridget Walker, El Dorado, KS

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

Nice I like the last line!

This poem is awesome. You wrote it so well that I can almost picture her but at the same time, it brings power to me. You set the right tone, and you chose the right words to write your poem in. Please do continue to expand more in this type of writing, and keep it groovy. :)
