An Epanalepsis Reply: Trust The Eye’s

An epanalepsis reply:

Trust The Eye’s

Trials of true love, passion tested.
True love is in your eyes.
His and yours, can’t be disguised, true love.
Unrequited love, love forlorn.
Will never pass the test, will never
Trust the eyes they never lie.
Can’t conceal a lie, trust the eyes!
