Literature/Clarification I am using a word correctly

Question
I appreciate your time. I am wanting to confirm the word Juxtaposition is used correctly in the sentence below??

I live in a world of constant juxtaposition between the LOVE and FUTURE that I long for with you and the HEARTACHE and LOSS I endure without you.

Answer
Hi Dan,

I think that sounds good, so I would say that's a correct use, yes.

If this is a sentence in a story you are writing, however, I would recommend writing all the words in lower case letters. But, if it is a poem, the upper case letters could perhaps work.

Regards,
