"I love you," she whispered to him.
He kicked her down the steps
Into the rain.
"I love you." He kicked her down into the mud.
"I love you. I love you. I love you."
Her tears of love leaked down through the dirt.
"I love you. I love you. I love you."
And down past dirt and stone.
"I love you."
Through Earth's crust and past the mantle blanketing its surface.
Down rivers miles deep and through caverns millenniums old.
"I love you. I love you. I love you."
Until, through fire and sand, it reached the core.
And Earth swallowed it, and magnified it.
"I love you. I Love You! I LOVE YOU!"
Unable to withstand its honesty and power
The core broke it:
Into a billion trillion pieces.
And then they echoed.
Back up through underground waterfalls and molten rock.
Skipping and leaping over inching plates of rocks.
Jumping cracks in the rock.
"I love you. I love you. I love you."
Until at last they are free and are whispered,
Raised by its power she stands,
"I love you. Te amo. Je t'aime."
Without humility, shyness, hesitation.
With peace and understanding and forgiveness.
Six billion voices speaking as one single,
"I love you."
