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

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 think I'm going to quote you. Genius.

Finally, a poem that gives it to you straight. Every now and then, you'll find that she is like a candy coated piece of fecal matter. Great free-verse.
