    heaven to touch

    Are these sentences correct:

    1) She is like heaven to touch.
    2 She is heaven to touch.

    Do they mean:
    1a) To touch her is like heaven.
    2a) To touch her is heaven.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: heaven to touch

    That's what they mean. #1 is grammatical. #2 should be "heavenly". Both are nonsense.

    I don't see them in that way.

    1) is a simile and 2) is a metaphor, and they mean the same.
