'Poetry is first of all about feelings. Make a list of all the feelings you can think of and choose five that can be the starting points for a poem. Try making up five similes that compare the feeling to an object, an animal, or a person.'

Here are the feelings I got (the five that I chose have a star beside them)

*Hate- Hate is like a rock. It makes the heart hard.
love
*Anger- Anger is as frustrating as a hard math equation.
joy
*Jealousy- Jealousy is like an enemy. It encourages one to hate.
*Sadness
rejection
sympathy
gratitude
*Fear

Those are my similes for hate, anger, and jealousy. I still need one for sadness and fear.

Thanks

    Nevermind I got one for sadness- Sadness is like an empty room, quiet and lonely

    Sadness is like a cold, rainy day. The tears flow off and on like intermittent rain.

    Fear is a car's headlights reflected in the eyes of a deer.

    Fear is a fog that obscures reality.
