    The Irony of Love

    Irony is a literary or rhetorical device.
    The essayist Henry Watson Fowler wrote:
    “any definition of irony
    —though hundreds might be given,
    and very few of them would be accepted—
    must include this,
    that the surface meaning
    and the underlying meaning of
    what is said are not the same.'
    He left out that any definition of
    Irony must include that it is cruel.

    I never understood
    The meaning of irony
    Or how cruel it can be,
    Until you told me,
    That though you may love me,
    You find it difficult to
    Hear the words
    “I love you” from me.

    You see, some three years ago
    You jokingly said
    'I love you' to me,
    And I begged you
    Never to utter those words again.
    Not because I did not want to hear them,
    But because they were difficult for me.
    They carried heart-felt consequences
    That I did not want to face.
    So, I shut out my heart and followed my head.
    And in life filled with so many regrets,
    It was the biggest mistake I ever made.

    The irony,
    After some thousand days have past,
    You uttered the same
    Imprudent sentiment to me.
    This sentiment is the definition of irony –
    The surface meaning
    And underlying meaning are not the same.
    Because although I asked you not to say
    “I love you”,
    It is all I wanted to hear.

    The cruelty,
    That now that heaven has at last
    Blessed, cursed me with
    Clarity of the heart,
    And I want to say what I mean
    With no different underlying sentiment,
    You tell me you do not
    Want to hear these words from me.

    But the most ironic and cruelest part,
    Will be,
    If you make the same mistake I made
    And keep from me what is within your heart. read more »
