A fit of passionate sobbing choked her. She crouched on the floor like a wounded thing, and Dorian Gray, with
his beautiful eyes, looked down on her, and his chiseled lips curled in exquisite disdain. There is always something ridiculous about the emotions of people whom one has ceased to love.

– Oscar Wilde

The Picture of Dorian Gray, Chapter 7. Both metaphor ("chiseled lips") and simile ("like a wounded thing") are used with great effect to convey the cruel disdain of Dorian and pain of the rejected Sibyl. Dorian cares nothing for her feelings and even seems to enjoy his humiliation of the girl he once loved.
