Example of Extended Metaphor
She could have been beautiful,
this rose of an arrogant dark red, its beauty attempting to crush those around her. Yet her beauty was scarred by the thorns piercing her image into shreds. Hulga let her wine colored petals atone for the deformity, yet when her heavy wood foot came down her arrogance was hopelessly trampled into the ground, the thorns exposed, and her identity stolen.
By. Shaira Hai and Pragna G.
Hulga could have had a brilliant life ahead of her, with a PhD in philosophy in her pocket and thoughts way beyond the grasp of good country people. She was, however, much
like a blank sheet of expensive paper all crumpled up. She would not let others write their beliefs on her, nor permit anything pleasant to be written on that pale sheet that would’ve yielded her some joy. Instead, Hulga chose to crumple herself into a paper-ball, leaving the people around her with no other option, but to throw her directly into the waste bin. Her depreciation was a result of her own self-condemnation. No doubt, Hulga had crumpled and trashed her own life
