Oxymoron is a figure of speech in which two opposite ideas are joined to create an effect. The common oxymoron phrase is a combination of an adjective proceeded by a noun with contrasting meanings, such as  Flying houses and breathing words

example by Sir Thomas Wyatt

I find no peace, and all my war is done
I fear and hope, I burn and freeze like ice,
I flee above the wind, yet can I not arise;

another sample

you have fears and dreams, you change your mind like wind,
east and west, you can not skip the central core of the land
