Light and Dark
Darkness is like a gaping black hole (Simile)
Looming 'round to consume its helpless prey.
Stealing happiness like a greedy troll, (Simile)
To destroy the light at the end of the day.
Darkness always tries to hide in night,
For the day and night are in a constant war. (Metaphor)
Darkness is known as the king of fright, (Personification)
While for the day people implore.
Day and night cannot coexist;
It must be one in place of the other.
Each one will always try to persist,
The constantly feuding sister and brother. (Personification)
Darkness and light have chosen their side. (Metaphor)
Their war will come about like an oncoming tide. (Simile)
