The End Poetry in Marketplace Metaphor Break-up Poetic Technique Express Anger Purpose 1. "Climbing up the ladder for a longer life"

One's life is being compared to a ladder which is envisioned as a path of life that will lead someone to their goals. If one steps up, they are on their way to achieve success. 2. "Put a tiger in your tank"

In this advertisement by Esso, the tiger represents strength and power. By putting Esso petrol in a car, it will behave like a tiger (powerful).

It compares the quality of oil to the strength and power of a tiger 3. "There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch is and it's bringing me out the dark"
--Rolling in the deep by Adele

The "fire in [her] heart" represents the passion and the burning anger stored in her heart. The burning fire (anger) is compared to the heat of a fever. 1. "It's like a shock
That spun me around
And now my heart's dead
I feel so empty and hollow"
--Rehab by Rihanna

~ "And now my heart's dead" ~ overstatement of the feelings from her heart ache.

These lines in Rihanna’s song show the feeling of emotional and physical loss of a person. The line “and now my heart’s dead” compares her sorrow and hurt to the to the feeling of a dead heart. Her heart is not really dead, but her pain makes it feel as if it is. Theme 1. 'Don't go gentle into that good night' by Dylan Thomas

Stanza 1 - "Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

~ "frail deeds might have danced" ~ personification

~ "Rage, Rage against the dying of the light" ~ the speaker is commanding the reader to fight, complain and get angry at death for taking one's life away. The message being conveyed is to fight death and not to give in easily 3. "Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing at someone else; you are the one who gets burned"

~ "Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal" ~ simile

There is no point of holding onto anger against the opposing person because it backfires. In the end, it harms you, puts you down and ruins your mood instead of doing anything to the other person that you're angry at. 2."Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret."

~ "best speech you will ever regret" ~ paradox

If you are angry and you let your anger speak, you will probably speak with overwhelming passion without thinking it through and may say things that are irrational. It is equivalent to saying "anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind." 3. "Love is sad, and love is cruel.
To find it again, don’t be a fool."

~ "Love is sad, and love is cruel" ~ personification of love

The speaker is telling the audience with confidence what love is. It shows that the speaker speaks according to his/her experience. The speaker is saying that falling in love is useless and a waste of time. All it does is it gives you pain and suffering. If you still look for such people, you are no more or no less than a fool. 2. "Girl I refuse, you must have me confused
With some other guy
Your bridges were burned, and now it's your turn
To cry, cry me a river"

~ "To cry, cry me a river" ~ hyperbole

This clearly shows that the speaker has had his fair share of sorrowful moments which might have been caused by his/her partner. The speaker wants wants the partner to cry and suffer just like they did.
