What is a Metaphor?

A metaphor is there to make an even stronger image in the reader's head by describing a place, subject, or object as something unlikely.

Examples of using a Metaphor in a sentence:

He was a speeding bullet.

A sea of trouble.

Drowning in debt.

Examples of two nouns that are compared or contract each other:

I am a rainbow.

The world is a stage.

Her eyes were glistening jewels.

Metaphors are used in poetry to create an image of comparison in your thoughts.
