Love With A Metaphor


Love With A Metaphor

Take a look at me
I’m a simple simile
Take a look at her
She’s a metaphor
What can I tell you
About my love
She is like no other
No one can compare
What have I done
To deserve this fate
Why do I love a she who
Is too good for little me
Gods of Poetry why
be so unkind to this
simple simile to make
me love a metaphor

  1. Cute and sweet and really making me work too hard to remember the differences between similes and metaphors. School was a long time ago for some of us, remember, lol. So you’re not as good as her because she’s more exacting, right? Isn’t that right????

  2. Oh, I absolutely love this one, Andrew! What a wonderful way to express this idea!

    Love the idea that she’s a metaphor (“like no other”), and the way the whole poem is a metaphor for the relationship…

    Brilliant! 🙂

    • You are sending me to the clouds with your comments. Thank you. You are the frist person to point out the poem was a metaphor about the relationship. I so wish this beautiful metaphor could fall in love with the simple simile. Thank you for your kind words. You made my day.

  3. Heyyyyyyy there, it’s been so long. Good to be back (well, almost back 🙂 ). Great little poem. I can empathize. Believe me. I’ve had my dark days even when I’ve been like, “Oh God, I’m a cancer in his bones.” Then again, my mom always did call me melodramatic. Hahah. I’m sure that she and you make the perfect poetic paragraph.
