Lit From Within
Uncommon poetic form — Dizain
She appeared lit from within — all aglow
An intriguing sheen covered her dark skin
The curious asked, they wanted to know
On every comment, she said with a grin
New makeup, new blush, I coloured it in
Perhaps in the water, maybe less stress
No answer she gave them put it to rest
She must have unearthed some new chemistry
Sure reason for this mysteriousness
Alignment with Source — tools of sorcery
