Examples of metaphoric in a Sentence

  1. Anonymous:

    Time heals all wounds”, isn't that what we've always been told? But, what about the scar a wound leaves behind? What will heal that? Of course medically speaking plastic surgery can erase even the mightiest of scars but in metaphoric terms: if a sad and depressing incident then the scab/scar left behind would be a memory of it and nothing can wipe out memories(or at least not something I know of, except for a severe head injury). Then again we perhaps may forget about it momentarily or for a while, but, eventually the memories will resurface, in dreams or because of a sudden flashback...so, in reality does time actually heal wounds ?
