The correct answers to this question are metaphor and similie. Metaphors and similies are two figures of speech. Using metaphors and similies allow the writing to be more interesting to the user. These figures of speech are popular in poetry.

They differ in the way they are implemented. Similies are more direct because they use the words as and like to compare things to each other. Metaphors are implied and will not use the words like and as. An example of a similie would be the phrase "Life is like a box of chocolates". An example of a methaphor is "Love is war".
