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

To tell you the truth, I am so tired of hearing about vampires! Get over it, people! But it was a very good poem.

Wow, I really like this. You did well! I like how you took an every day story, and transformed it into something no one would think of. Good job.
