Continuing with the recent weeks talking about making artistic comparisons, a songwriter can do so with a simile.
A simile is a comparison of two different things using “like” or “as”
You can compare two similar objects like:
- Soft as a pillow
- Hot like fire
Or compare two different things in a contrasting (almost sarcastic) juxtaposition:
- He’s as alive as a tombstone
- Strength like a feather
Regardless of how you choose to use a simile, be sure it enhances the creative and descriptive poetry of the song.
