Write a poem that explores the oxymoronic complexities of love. “A cruel kindness” or “a painful pleasure”.
Love is simultaneously simple yet complex, and is often filled with contradicting emotions and experiences. This prompt encourages exploration into the strange coexistence of these paradoxical elements in love. For example, how can love be both cruel and kind? Or how can pleasure be painful? The use of oxymorons here can create surprising twists and turns in your poem.
