Beauty is the Beast | Teen Ink

Beauty is the Beast MAG

By Bridget Walker, El Dorado, KS

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

Extremely bad writing, filled with cliches. Vampires are overused by agnsty teenagers who don't take the time to truly learn how to write. Please reconsider ever writing again before getting some professional help and leaving your ridiculous clique.

I absolutely love this piece. It tells an entire story in a little paragraph. I did, however get confused by this line, “Her skin, butter-cream by day, turns translucent by night. Does this mean she is a ghost. Other than that line I love the poem.

Very good poem! I could visualize the entire thing! when you said "butter cream by day", I actually got hungry! "But cleverly disguised the mark of the beast lies in her hands" shows how discrete she was in hiding what she truly was.

Hmm...reminds me too much of a certain movie that is comming out soon (no, it's not twilight). The name eludes me, but I'll give you a hint: It's main marketing point is that it has Morgan Fox in it, and they expect to attract a crowd of dim-witted adolescents with that. :
