distinct differences

Well, I've been thinking a lot lately. I've been looking into my past and I've been reading poetry again. It's one of those moods.

So, I thought I'd write a little spiel on something that's nagging at my head.

Think, just think, of one time where you knew someone was meaning something else other than what they meant. This is also known as Irony.

Definition of Irony

Irony: Pronounced - ī'rə-nē:
a) The use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning.
b) An expression or utterance marked by a deliberate contrast between apparent and intended meaning.

Now, think, going back in time to a movie you watched or to some comedy you witnessed. Irony is powerful in its many uses and its many meanings. It can change the topic of a conversation completely around, it can bring people to their knees if it reaches to a point.
So, as I write I keep thinking, "I know of some situations, I know stuff like this, I've had this happen."
and as I thought that I also took into account the subtle differences in expression and delivery of the words. It was almost heartbreaking as i think about it now.

For example:
when you know someone is going to be coming back and they say, "I'll see you later" you trust them, you know you'll see them, but when you know or are unsure if they're coming back and they say that you can feel it. You can feel a bite inside of you. It moves and squirms inside of your mind and your heart.

Am I right? Or wrong?

Shall I continue? Of course.

I've seen firsthand and experienced a lot of this. About two maybe three years, maybe even four, ago I had a friend dear to me leave. Well, not just a friend, two friends dear to me leave. I never thought I'd see them again. It was breaking me inside and I actually dissolved to tears inside of my dad's car on our way home.

It's certain things like that. A friend leaving, a grandparent passing, a parent not coming home, a lover disappearing. It's things like that that can make you think about just how much they hinted to such things before, the last moment you spke, which you now wish wasn't your last moment.

Death is cruel.
