Open-End poem with a metaphor.

Choose a metaphor. Use the primary word for your title. Then write three lines. Each line should say something different about the subject, or give an idea of what it is like. Each line can be either a phrase or a sentence. The last line is a metaphor that begins with the title. It might sum up what you wrote in the other three lines. Write four poems following these criterias.

I've got two only.

Two hands held tightly
two faces laughing
two dreams in one
Love is a circle

Poison in the river
poison in the air
poison in our bodies
Pollution is the enemy in the Third World War

Can someone help me with the other two.
Thank you very much for your assistance.
