. We've been there, so we understand when love-slain pairs pledge endless, fearless love to which nothing compares. And all that brave, romantic exaggeration that smacks of the lovers' paranoid delusion. Theirs is not a nice lie, only a misstatement. They just can't help but gush with much overstatement. But they're sincere in their starry-eyed intention, while swept away by cloyingly sweet emotion. So when we hear them promise to love each other beyond eternity, till hell freezes over, let's allow them some leeway for such hyperbole. Their words, like ours, are touching, but really silly! .
