Romantic Hyperbolic

You've been there so you 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 excessive intention while swept away by cloyingly sweet emotion. So, when you hear them promise to love each other beyond eternity, till hell freezes over, just allow some leeway for such hyperbole; their words, like yours, are touching, but really silly !
