    Hi @redskychicken First, we need to examine the definition of each word. Can you try and list the definitions?

    Well, imagery is words made to put an image in your mind, so discriptive words. syntax is just proper sentence structure. and tone is creating a feel for the story, making it seem happy, sad, scary etc. So the only one left would be irony.

    Tone? Its sound more likely for that to be the answer since its giving you a feeling of loneliness as he has trouble either forgetting her or remembering her.

    Lets go for Irony. Because he does seem to find something funny as if its happened before in the past.
