No that is not 'cause a metaphor doesn't use these words "like", "as", & "such as". When you noticed that there's a word like I've written earlier it means ... it belongs to SIMILES

Is this a metaphor ?
He felt as if he were in the skies
If it's not what device is it

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 10/23/2015 - 08:12
it is not a metaphor because

it is not a metaphor because metaphors can not use like or as. But in the text you have used as. This is a simile.

I´m not an expert but I think it is not a metaphor because you are not comparing "He" with "the skies" I mean, you´re not describing "He" as the being "the skies"
He just feels like being there.
So I think that would be just imagery. I´ll leave you the definition.

Imagery is intense, descriptive language in a poem that helps to trigger our senses and our memories when we read it.

Example

"Shot me out of the sky
You're my kryptonite
You keep making me weak
Yeah, frozen and can't breathe"

Kryptonite makes superman weak. Harry used it in describing a girl, who makes her weak.
both are different but have something in common.
