    Some I've already answered, Her eyes were (sparkling) like "diamonds". So you were supposed to put something that sparkles. So I put diamonds.

    And yes I do know what a metaphor is. It is something that is said sarcastically or means something else.

    No you are thinking of a simile. Similes always have like or as they are comparing things. Metaphors have "as" kind of like, " She was as light AS a feather."
