    Metaphor

    Hi,
    Are these following metaphors suited in English?

    " He imprinted the stamp of discredit and disloyalty on their foreheads; he inflamed the fire of regret and sorry in their spirits."
    Please correct my mistakes if you encounter any.

    Re: Metaphor

    "Sorry" isn't a noun so it doesn't work there.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Metaphor

    What about this metaphor:
    "My chest is burning from the hot grief of death of my father and brothers."

    Is it suited? Do you have these metaphors in English? I simply translate them to English

    Re: Metaphor

    It doesn't exist in English but it could be turned into a perfectly grammatical sentence.

    My chest is burning with the hot grief of the ​death of my father and brothers.

    Re: Metaphor

    If if doesn't exist, then how would you say such words? Is it strange if I use them in my writings?
