Hello people! How’re you all doing? Firefly is back again, haha. It’s almost been a month and finally I somehow found the inspiration to write today. I’m so disappointed that I quit that April Poetry Challenge on the 26th day huh. What a shame! Let’s hope that I continue to write in the coming days now. O, Goddess of Poetry, please shine your magic wand on me. 🤩
So, I’ve been studying Literary devices this week, and this particular device ‘Oxymoron’ struck me. An oxymoron is a figure of speech where two opposite ideas are put together. For example: deafening silence, living death etc.
Check out this poem of mine where I’ve attempted to use as many oxymorons as possible, so ultimately this poem looks like a freaking moron! It has no meaning, huh. But, as it’s said ‘The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ This is my single step in the right direction. 😼
It was a light hearted tragedy,
Of two venomous pure hearts,
Of hateful love, of loving hate, Of
How destiny threw them together apart.
Silent screams of those cheerful ballads,
That adorned their dying newborn love,
Still echo in the distant hills with a dull grace,
Nature lies drenched in fiery snowflakes.
Their death bloomed like wilted flowers,
Storms silenced the oceanless shore,
While love remained a soulful carcass,
Bleeding away with a hopeful remorse.
So, how many oxymorons could you spot? And could you make out any meaning out of it? These were like 3:30 A.M. thoughts that I sneakily penned down in my notes app. It’s so annoying when you jot down one idea, close your phone and finally get down to sleep when suddenly a new idea pops up and you just have to note it down or else you’ll forget this brilliant phrase tomorrow. And this cycle keeps on repeating, and you realise it’s morning, haha.
