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

good stuff. I don't see why people say it sounds a lot like twilight, cause this is completely different. Twilight is just a overworked love story, but this poem is saying that beauty is only skin deep. I like it, man.

overall the piece gives of a very twilight vibe, but a good one none the less, I enjoyed the emphasis you put on some of the lines, this may sound cheap but i would really appreciate if you would critique one of my pieces,
