can you hear it?

can you hear it? he says.

what do you mean? she asks.

the voices. he responds, the voices of the earth.

no, she replies. i can't hear it.

he smiles and and holds out his hand.

i can teach you, he says.

her eyes are sad, but her mouth smiles. 

you can't, she says. you can't teach me what i chose to forget.

why? he asks, his eyes conveying his sorrow. why not?

it will only bring sorrow, she warns.

i don't belive it, his mouth says, but in truth, he knows he does.

you'll belive it, she says. its just a matter of time.

i'll still love you, he promises.

i know, she responds. that's why you can't do this.

please, he begs.

i'm sorry, she says. i'm sorry.

her eyes are filled with heartbreak as she starts to leave.

don't go! he cries.

i love you too much not to, she tells him.

then she is gone, like a leaf on the wind.
