  11. 11. A figure of speech in which an implied comparison is made between two unlike things that actually have something in common. A metaphor expresses the unfamiliar- in terms of the familiar (the vehicle). metaphor "Love is a rose, " "rose" is the vehi Love is a rose but you better not pick it It only grows when it's on the vine. A handful of thorns and you'll know you've missed it You lose your love when you say the word "mine". Neil Remember a direct comparison does not use like or as Young
