Poem of the Day: 6 Jan 2010

She was beautiful,

She was beautiful, 
with her long braid
running down her spine
blacker than
your bedroom, when you
turn out the lights
and close the curtains,
darker than that.
And even colder 
and blacker
was her expression
a broiling frown
ruining the pallor of her
skin and perfect lips.
Her eyes were colorless 
and definitely not white
nor clear
nor any other color
known to man.
Her teeth 
sharp on the edges
and paper-white
exposed by her expression
and her fingers
tapered off
like little blades
glistening with
malice
ready for a 
kill,
and yet.
She was beautiful.

Mia A. (Middle School, 2009-10) (p#7220)
