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

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. :)

This poem is very good! I especially like how you never mention what specifically the subject of the poem is, but gives hints in the text. Nice job!
