Beauty in the beast

This is a blog post by Udom Ndinanake...Still waters surely run deep, behind that beauty lies a beast.

Beautiful predator

The Heavens and the Earth could neither deny nor conceal her radiance and charm. For underneath the sun, her skin glowed enough to fool anyone that she was the world's source of light.

In the cover of the night's darkness, her eyes glittered like gold.  She drew her breath slowly and carefully, she'd thread the ground with caution as though she didn't want to hurt it. Her body carriage smacked of majesty and pride.

When you head for greener pastures never let your guard down, for she will be lurking somewhere around. Yes, she's never far away from the green sides of life, for she's knows where the crowd will gather and nothing conceals her presence and the danger she poses more, than pleasure and green pastures.

If life was a deck of cards she'll be Lucifer's ace. If it was a game of chees she'll be his queen. If life was a quiver, she’ll be his favorite arrow.

They say when a mission proves too difficult and dangerous for the devil, he sends her. Her bosom offers comfort that leads to death, her embrace is your doom and her kiss leaves your body without its soul. Still waters surely run deep, behind that beauty lies a beast.
