    Hi redhead,

    A metaphor is a comparison between two different things using the verb "to be":

    She is a sun. He is my port. They are angels.

    A simile is also a comparison between two different things using the words
    as or like:

    He eats like a pig. She cries like a cat. She shines as bright as the sun.

    Okay? :wink:
