    A metaphor is a type of figurative language. It's where we compare two things, using the words "is" or "are." For example: "I am a cow." It's a figure of speech, because I'm not LITERALLY a cow. It's not meant to be taken literally. It just means that I'm fat and oafish.

    A metaphor is a literary figure of speech that describes a subject by asserting that it is, on some point of comparison, the same as another otherwise unrelated object. Metaphor is a type of analogy and is closely related to other rhetorical figures of speech that achieve their effects via association, comparison or resemblance including allegory, hyperbole, and simile. from wiki
