Title: Button

A metaphor is "something used, or regarded as being used, to represent something else". and a simile is a figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind,.. so, pick a word and set your clock for 5 minutes [it might not take that long] and try to use the 5 senses, for example a license plate tastes like a prison workshop [Simile] or a dentist drill is a missile that explodes in your mouth [Metaphor]

Senses: sight, sound, taste, touch, kinesthetic, smell

Simile
A button tastes like 10-week old gum
A button smells like an empty room
The sound of the dropping button gave him a sense of the world coming undone
He caresses the button like a hungry lover
The button refused to release its grip on the shirt, as if knowing a slip through the hole would render it useless
The twinkling of brass buttons reflected in the sunlight reminded her of Christmas

Metaphor
A button is insurance for keeping people decent
