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

"She is the deciever, the harlot of the hills"

Omigosh, that was beautiful in so many ways. I love how you could put so much emotion into such a short piece.

I love the title, it caught my attention right away and then your story was very well written. Also very true as to the nature of people... If you could check out my poem and tell me what you think that would be great.

so well written!! it tells it straight but at the same time leaves it to the imagination...and I know that hardly makes sense, but in a sense it makes a lot. :) keep submitting stuff, some day you'll win something and I'll be able to say I have an idea who in the heck you are!!
