Simile

The puppy was bound by his harness like a criminal who had been handcuffed by the police.

Her awkwardly nervous laugh filled the room like crickets after a poor joke.

Metaphor

Tiffani was a gargoyle, perched on the edge of the wall and motionless.

The trees were a canopy, casting a cooling shadow over the busy walk way.
