Last of all, the departure of too love ones are also filled with figurative languages like Metaphor and Verbal Irony as the two love ones say their farewell. So in the play "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare (II.ii) every page is engulfed with varieties of figurative language that bring forth a vivid perspective of the two lovers.
