Betrayal is the Bitter Potion

Betrayal is a bitter poison
Hearts that love sometimes endure
At times there is no reason or rhyme 
Yet, it always cuts deeply for sure

Betrayal is the bitter potion
Served by your sweetest desire
No reason or rhyme is there at times
Some will say the universe conspires

Betrayal is the unexpected
Un announced, knocking upon your door 
At times there’s no reason or rhyme 
It causes mayhem; it kills the joy

Betrayal is a silent killer
Insidious, it creeps in your bones
No reason or rhyme is there at times
Beware, it's a demon on the roam

    The rhyming in some stanzas of lines 2 & 4 are not obvious and c1;c2 could perhaps been a bit tighter (as per the examples)eg 5 syllables & 5 syllables through out. I agree that betrayal is a bitter potion. Congratulations on your win, Annalise. Best wishes, Suzette
