Why Irony?

By MGood

Missing in a lost world.
Bound by invisible threads.
Trapped in open space.
Arriving departure, creeping blatantly,
Fills me empty,
As we pretend the truth.
The pleasure in the pain,
To love, to hate.
To give, to take.
Anticipating regret.
I need your nothing,
To start the end.

    This reminds me of Friar Lawrence's speech in Romeo and Juliet. He used irony in a very clever way and it comes out in your work.
