Surprisingly, it's no surprise,
To find the truth in all my lies,
When fast asleep with open eyes,
I'm breathless as I breathe.

I whisper, as I scream at you,
“I'm overjoyed at feeling blue,”
I'm joking, but I mean it too,
And enter as I leave.

What am I?

Hint:

Not an oxymoron or paradox, but similar.

Surprisingly, it's no surprise,

To find the truth in all my lies,

Sometimes your mind can deceive you, but ultimately you can't knowingly lie to yourself, so there is always truth.

When fast asleep with open eyes,

I'm breathless as I breathe.

Thoughts come at all times of day, even in the subconscious.


I whisper, as I scream at you,

“I'm overjoyed and feeling blue,”

Thoughts are silent, but they can seem loud.

I'm joking, but I mean it too,

And enter as I leave.

Some thoughts are personal jokes (think sassy), and when they leave your mind they might enter the 'real world'.


What am I?

A thought

Are you

An antonym?

Because...

Antonym means "opposite", which is what every line contains a pair of.
