This is something I wrote (adult content—and very bad description of sex):
Strangely, it didn't feel much like sex. I felt we were just exchanging feelings that we couldn't be put into words. Thoughts we could only share by joining our bodies as though they were one. It was a strange sensation—like I was being sucked into a dark void, blending with it, losing myself in it. Yet feeling completely at peace, understanding everything it had to tell me.
Nana continued moving for a few more seconds until—not being to contain it anymore—I came. I came over and over again, with a violence that I had never experienced before. As if someone had punched a big hole in a dam. Exhausted, I spread my arms on the bed, trying to catch my breath. Nana got herself off, and cuddled next to me. We remained like that for a while, holding each other naked in the dark like two newborn infants.
So, right now, I'm just starting my metaphors/similes with like and as if
In which other ways I can present them?
