Romantic love is a metaphor for all the things that make your heart swell and make you feel alive.
Love is everything beautiful in the world. (synecdoche)
Love is like a river rushing over my soul. (simile)
Love lasts forever and is lovely. (alliteration)
Love takes my breath away. (hyperbole)
Love triumphs! (personification)
There are many ways you can use literary terms to describe love. Here are just a few:
Hyperbole: Love makes me want to shout from the mountain tops.
Simile: Love is like a million butterflies fluttering in my stomach.
Onomotopeia: Love makes my heart beat so loud I can hear it pound, "boom-boom, boom-boom."
Allusion: It was as if I was hit with Cupid's arrow.
What a wonderful question. Love, in literary terms, is:
-an emotional roller-coaster which propels you forward only to bring you to a complete stop later. (metaphor)
-a personal pact with a partner. (alliteration)
-a wave of water which brings goosebumps to the flesh. (imagery and alliteration)
-hugging my heart. (personification)
