Beauty is the Beast MAG

By Anonymous

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

It's a good poem; i like the last line. but until then, i wasn't feeling it - was it supposed to be some magical creature like a water nymph, or was it metaphorical - as though it is simply an evil woman? Truth be told, due to the bloody lips line, it sounds like a vampire. I liked how you showed rather than told her feelings/intentions, though.
