Similes And Metaphors

The creek of the door sounded as if someone was screaming. The room was dark, just as I expected it to. I stepped into the room and shut the door behind me. Even though I had my eyes open, the dark room made it seem like I had them closed. Looking for the light switch made it seem I was wondering aimlessly through a dark maze. I placed my hands on the walls and started to slide them across in search for the switch. My hands moved smoothly across the walls like a swan on a lake. A bump. My hands found the switch but when I felt the bump it was as if a car crashed into a tree. I flicked the switch and light sprang into the room, I used my hands to cover my eyes like a vampire.

I jumped into my bed and the bed sprang me up on impact like a trampoline.  I wrapped myself in my blanket as if I was a caterpillar in a cocoon.  I closed my eyes and slept like a sloth.

  1. Hi Ram
    Great post. You have certainly nailed the learning intention of using similes in your post. Could you perhaps have come with a more interesting title for your work?
