His heart

Was something that I was pretty certain of

It was solid, strong

And most of all gold¹
¹Gold alone or pure gold does not combine easily with oxygen so it stays shiny, it does not rust nor tarnish, again, that is pure gold. In jewelry, it is rare to find a piece that contains only the pure gold element.

You would think, however

That something so pure

Would be true

But there lies the dichotomy

Truth is not always pure

So what was the lie?

Love can either be pure

Or love can be true

We test

If it can be both

or not

Take one girl and one boy

They are soulmates

Make them sad

Then add the two together in one vessel

Shake vigorously

Monitor temperature

If as expected the temperature has risen to 1111°C² 

Then it is love

Now add pressure and observe for variables truth and purity
