"There's a difference without a metaphor"

I have a problem with poetry.  

I was an English lit major in college.  We studied the rhyme and meter.  I despise metaphor.  Seriously!  I think it’s because I have read entire poems that are nothing but metaphor.  Just write about the damn flower!!!

I have only sparingly used metaphors in my story.  Anyway, I like this poem.  I haven’t even checked the meter or the rhyme.  This poem kinda twists the metaphor, “and it’s beautiful”.
