Simile and Metaphor
Similes and Metaphors are types
of figurative language.
Simile
 A simile compare two unlike things using one of
the following words: like, as, than, resembles.
 Example: The basketball player’s arms reached
out like branches as he blocked the shot.
 Example: The basketball player’s arms resembled
branches as he blocked the shot.
 Example: The basketball player’s arms looked
longer than tree branches as he blocked the shot.
Metaphor
 A metaphor compares two unlike things
without using like, as, than, or resembles. A
metaphor says one thing is another.
 Example: The boy was a ravished wolf as
he inhaled the pizza.
 Example: The stars were diamonds in the
sky shining down on the water.
“Part of Me” by Katy Perry
 "Part of Me"
 "Part Of Me"
Days like this I want to drive away
Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade
You chewed me up and spit me out
Like I was poison in your mouth
You took my light, you drained me down
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me

Now look at me I’m sparkling
A firework, a dancing flame
You won't ever put me out again
I’m glowin’, oh whoa
So you can keep the diamond ring
I never liked it anyway
In fact you can keep everything yeah, yeah
Except for me
