Is this a metaphor?

"Listen, your my prize pupil."
Is he comparing the other person as a prize pupil without using like or as?
yea i think that's a metaphor
No, it's not a metaphor. The adjective prize means "worthy of a prize."
Metaphors compare unlike things -- and that sentence doesn't compare anything.
ah i thought wrong. Thanks Ms. Sue for pointing that out
And "your" should be "you're"
