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

Wonderful! I love how you placed your sentences and stanzas. I will ask though, why did you put a period on the first line, and not the others? Did you do this on purpose, or was it an accident?

This is a very interesting piece of writing, but in some ways very true. What appears to be the beast is not always the real beast. What appears to be the beauty is not always the real beauty.

I truly enjoyed this poem. It reminds us of that age old saying "Judge not a book by its cover" excellent job. :)
