The Beast with Eyes Too Kind

In every city lives at least one beast. He’s not like us, yet charmingly he smiles and draws us to him with his eyes so kind. And those that he befriends are mostly kind, for they make easy prey for him, the beast, who has no kindness in him as he smiles. Too late his victims learn just why he smiles. His eyes confronting them are not so kind when they’ve discerned the nature of the beast. Beware the beast who smiles with eyes too kind. Feb. 16, 2019 A Tritina For Messina Poetry Contest

Reads to me like a good contender for the contest. Yes, according to what I see on ID on TV there are those horrible people out there that will use charm to lure a person in then he will torture and kill. Thanks for the visit to my page. Sara

My mother used to say, 'Beware the charming man' for most people don't realize that charm is often a manipulative ploy, really enjoyed this, good luck in the contest!

Appearances can be deceiving as you show in this work. I think the political situation in the country is kind of dark. May be we should both write poems about that! PEACE AND LOVE Matthew A
