A low moan broke from her, and she flung herself at his feet and lay there like a trampled flower.

– Oscar Wilde

The Picture of Dorian Gray, Chapter 7. Following her rejection by Dorian, a vivid simile compares Sibyl to a "trampled flower." Her innocence and lack of guile are emphasized in describing her as a flower. But the use of the word "trampled" give a hint of and foreshadows her tragic ending.
