    IS THIS A METAPHOR PEOM

    My life is basically a domino effect
    One bad thing then another
    But how could all these bad things happen
    To a girl that has a heart of gold
    No one really understands
    They think my life is full of sunny skies
    But in reality its gray skies
    The only sunshine in my life is dance
    I guess people can say Iím a diamond in the rough
    All of this is Greek to me
    How I could be smooth sailing but Iím not
    People say donít judge a book by its cover then why do people judge me

    IS THIS A METAPHOR PEOM

    From Soothing Dave:

    I think "hackneyed" is a better description.
    Have I missed something, Dave?

    What's this about?

    It's a response to: https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/t...-METAPHOR-PEOM

    Edit: Oops, I'm so sorry. I have messed up and merged these three posts into one instead of merging the whole thread into the one linked to above. I don't seem to be able to fix it.

    Re: IS THIS A METAPHOR POEM?

    Say:
    one bad thing after another

    (A poem might use metaphors, but I don't think there's such a thing as a metaphor poem.)

    Re: IS THIS A METAPHOR PEOM

    My statement was as clear as a bell. There are metaphors in the poem (heart of gold, for example), but it is not a metaphor poem. (There is no such thing.) However, you might call it a cliche poem.

    You might want to see if you can say something original.

    Shantal_, you still haven't amended your member profile, specifically your current location.
