A blind man looks back

Into the future with the

Ear-splitting whispers of

Unconcealed ghosts

Thundering silently.

~~~~

A wealthy peasant marches

Weakly across a blazing glacier

As the stars in the cloudy sky

Glisten grimly.

~~~~ A hateful saint drowns afloat

Into the dismal heaven of peaceful war.

~~~~

Solid water surges down a

Minuscule mountain into

A celestial hell.

~~~~

A colossal dinghy raises

Its feather-light anchor

With vicious doves circling

In the bright winter sky.

These are pretty good, but remember- oxymorons should always have an underlying meaning. They are not just conflicting phrases

I love oxymoron poems! One

I love oxymoron poems! One of my all time favourites:

 

One fine day,

In the middle of the night,

Two dead men got up to fight.

Back to back,

They faced each other,

Drew their swords and shot each other.

Paralised donkey walking pass,

Kicked a policeman on the....

 

 

I would say something witty and random here, but I just can't be bothered.

These are really cool. Most of them I had to think about because...well, I'm blonde :) But when I looked hard at them I realized the opposites. Good job, man, that was cool.

XD This is something like

XD This is something like "The Scary Clown Story". It was posted at least earlier than 2007, and it continues to top the popular list. Why is that? So weird... Oh, yeah, it's because SOMEBODY keeps commenting on it, wondering how it keeps topping the popular list, and reminding herself, "Oh, yeah, it's because SOMEBODY keeps commenting on it, wondering how it keeps topping the popular list..."

If you have a deep, secret fear of the world ending while you're in the middle of taking a shower, copy and paste this into your sig.

No wonder he quit: his first

No wonder he quit: his first comment was posted in 2007 when he wrote this five years earlier. He only posted seven or so poems: but all of them are getting thousands of reads. THAT's a writer's dream.
