    The light of my life - The person described by this metaphor isn't really providing physical light. He or she is just someone who brings happiness or joy

    A metaphor is a figure of speech that says that one thing is another different thing. This allows us to use fewer words and forces the reader or listener to find the similarities. The word metaphor comes from the Greek word metapherin (meaning "transfer"). The simplest form of metaphor is: "The [first thing] is a [second thing]." Look at this example: Her home was a prison.
