Beauty is the Beast | Teen Ink

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

I loved it! It reminded me of the Twilight books. So dangerously lovely and deadly. You were on point.

That was really amazing I loved how you used the imagrey. Your language within the poem is beutiful and I love the message sent out to your readers. I was really able to connect. And i don't read Twilight either.
