An unwelcome communication

An unwelcome communication

The drama unfolding was poison,
Cautiously dripped in her ear,
Whispered in words, quiet, noisome,
A secret, not welcome to hear.

Told by her best friend and lover,
Expected to be on her side,
Softened, if heard from another,
The blow left her heart open wide.

She had been, the last one to realise,
There were embarrassed looks all around,
And no one with bottle to verbalise,
It was her turn to buy the next round!
