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

The detail to the imagery was great.

But the whole "dark mistress of the night" thing is a little cliche and overdone.

Regardless, this was well done.

I think, to those of you who are focusing on the physical aspect, that she is being metaphorical.

The woman is a user, and drains the life from her men by using them and leaving them, not drinking their blood. She portrayed her as a beast to show her inner self, instead of the outer beauty.
