How do I word this sentence?
"Silence like a cancer grows"(Paul Simon song) I am trying to make a statement using this simile.
Silence like cancer grows speaks as a simile that silence is an emotional image of how secretes and untold truths cause individuals to be disturbed by strife.
First off -- great song and epic use of simile. :-)
About your sentence:
"Silence, like a cancer, grows" is a simile that creates an emotional image that silence -- secrets and untold truths -- can disturb and cause strife for individuals.
With a sentence like this, its more clear and more easily understood if you use direct statements. For example: ". . .grows' is a simile" versus ". . .grows' as a simile". The first one is better because 'Silence, like a cancer, grows' isn't 'like' or 'as' a simile, it is a simile.
I hope this helps!
