My first guess was alliteration (repetition of initial sounds). But it could be an assonance. This part, 'sorrow—sorrow' is a repetition. Hope that helps.
No, an assonance is repeating of a vowel sound, which sorrow-sorrow is not repeating the vowel sound, it's just repeating the word itself. An alliteration is when a sentence or phrase repeats the first letter in each word, and that's clearly not the case. So what you have is what I have stated before, and that is a metaphor! Metaphors literary figures of speech that describe a subject by asserting that they are, on some point of comparison, the same as another otherwise unrelated objects.
Hmm...okay. But I was saying that 'sorrow-sorrow' was a repetition not an assonance.
Oh, wasn't sure what part you were referring to was the assonance?
sorrow, for, lost, Lenore.
Oh yeah, no I don't see it. I can almost see the alliteration for- lost Lenore though : )
So what is it then?
its a metaphor
some one said they loved me is that true yes or no
yes, it's true. someone said i should just hang myself and i said, 'after you'.
so it is. so he does love me
yes, @afranklin12 he does. who is he anyway?
my friends dad brother
your friend's uncle?
yes. he is only 21 d i am only18

How could you say 'only' 21 & 18. I'm 15...and I feel old.
You feel old? I'm 42!
because he is 21 years old and i am 18 years old
question still open, wow
