Bad Metaphors


Love Is Like a Puzzle

That you just can never finish.

Love is like a child at the table

Behind a plate of spinach.


Hope Is Like an Anchor

That ties you to the ground

And soon forgets you there…

Screaming, but no one can hear a sound.


Dreams Are Like Reality,

So hopeful yet so cruel.

They give you the strength to go on

And then take away the fuel.


Promises Are Like Laws;

They’re just made to be broken.

They always seem to fall apart

Just as soon as they’re spoken.


Freedom Is Like Prison;

We’re condemned to be free.

It’s just a word we fight for

That we can’t understand or see.


And Life is Like a Movie

Because it will always end.

Some are good and some are bad

And from Death no one can mend.
