Simile- the world beats dead
like a slackened drum
THe wold seems dead to her, like beating on a loose drum skin.
"the lamps of the city prick my eyes"
This separation is painful
" i leave you
to wound myself against the sharp edges
of the night?"
Again metaphor/personification. She is feeling the painful edges of the night as she eperates further from her love.
