    Not many people have read that poem. You may want to post it on here, for others to go through.

  • Poetry -

    A simile uses like or as to compare things. A metaphor is a implicit comparison for ex. He is a snake. It doesn't use like or as, but like a simile it still compares things.

    One simile would be: The birds of night peck at the first stars
    that flash like my soul when I love you.

    simile = turning like a drowning man's.

    metaphor = oceanic eyes.
