The tree boy, Oxymoron poem.

by Harry

Poetry challenge: Oxymoron poem.
Submitted by arun
A big green tree that looked so dry,
Berries like soft cheeks, bark thorny eyed.
It lay near the sidewalk, standing in my way,
Felt eager to touch, as i shyly walked away.

Answers that question,

our spontaneous preconceived notions,

about this deathly life

and its fast paced slow motion,

deserve a detailed mention,

or maybe a fleeting discussion,

not coz they create, a clarity of confusion,

but because they confuse..with complete clarification!

True love

by billgncs

Poetry challenge: Oxymoron.

We loved forever, but then we stopped
Our hearts, an impenetrable shield, that fizzled and popped
I’ll chase you through the forest as I wait
each morning I’ll be early unless I’m late.
If you only knew my heart you wouldn’t know much

Lost Memory

by Venkat

Poetry challenge: Oxymoron

One thing was too many

I tried hard without interest

To find my gone world

I turned still with fear

In the end, I began

I gained some lost ground

Soon, I slowly regained my memory

The sound of silence

by willowdot21

Poetry challenge: Oxymoron’s

A deafening silence  descended up the hill  and someone shouted “good grief”

Two young adults  came into view looking like the living dead

Their eyes wide shut they looked ahead behind each stone to vent locked up release.

Their clothing was inside out and they were walking upside down and they kept looking back ahead.
