The Echo Of The Highest Peak (Oxymoron Poem) - Poem by Marieta Maglas

We've been in the burning frost o' the highest peak
to unlock the open secrets, and to leave the sweet
sorrow. In my upward fall, I told the pure evilness,
'I want nothin' more and ne'er again.' I hung the word

in that eloquent qu'etness. I hung the qu'etness in the
air. I found its own sense and the opposite. The word
and the qu'etness were like the hole and the star. In
that spiritual freezer burning, I found the insomniac

dreams o' my destiny and the waking dreams o' my
twisted fate. You made them become numb feelings
and vice versa much more than a lyric song becomes
a music sound to be a lyric song again. In that magic

realism, my silent scream was moved into its echo
to become deafening silence forever. Fairly obvious,
the down climbing evilness echo'd, 'I want nothin'
more and ne'er again, nothin' more and ne'er again.'

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'A REVIEW OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DRAMATIC MONOLOGUE To explore the possibilities of Dramatic Monologue within the Whitehern historical archives, we must first understand what constitutes a Dramatic Monologue. Many detailed definitions of this poetic genre can be found, but all boil down to these basics.1. The Dramatic Monologue is written in the first person, apparent either at the beginning or disclosed somewhere within the poem. This is often an historical personage, who becomes the persona of the poem. This will often be the case with the Whitehern material since the monologue may be “spoken” by one of the members of the family, as in a letter.2. In the Dramatic Monologue there is an explicit or an implied listener, and the listener is sometimes addressed in the poem.3. In the Dramatic Monologue the persona of the poem reveals or betrays something of his/her own character in the telling, often a negative aspect, and certainly an ironic or dramatic aspect.4. The form of a Dramatic Monologue varies, but is usually a lyric poem, and can be a strictly structured poem like a sonnet, or can be a prose poem, or blank verse.''
