A Possible Series of Riddles #10

Updated on April 27, 2020

Writing free-verse riddles has always been fun, and letting others solve them even funner.

Rules

Please respect them:

1. One guess per person at a time, when I respond to you that is your cue to answer again or bask in your winning of the riddle.

2. Reading through the comments is cheating! Don't ruin it for yourself and others!

What Am I?

Look at me I am a shell,

May not break though if I fell.

Some may see me as a well,

Next to those shaped like a bell.


Sometimes I can be so bright,

But I will not shine at night.

I'm not able to make light,

But sometimes I can take your sight.


Watch me go I slide around,

Careful that you don't fall down.

Now you are on the ground,

But still I do not make a sound.


I come in all colors and shapes,

Never use me on great apes.

Perhaps I'd be used on your drapes,

Or just to make all smell like grapes.


Some may have me in their purse,

Others use me in a hearse.

Deep in a cut I make you curse,

I'm essential and the pain is terse.


May not find me at the store,

People seem to want some more.

Better show them to the door,

Making me was quite the chore.

Easy... Hopefully

I'm really struggling with creating easier riddles, but this time I am sure it is an easy one. It's really hard to blend figurative speech and literal observations without making everything too "out there" you know? Then again, some people say that is the fun in my riddles, the difficulty.

Whatever difficulty this is, I hope you enjoy it!

      A very interesting answer, but no, it is not a coin!

      LOL....I don't remember what order I said them, but only one makes sense as being edible.

      The final answer you gave was more along the lines of a question, it referred to one response, and the grapes line tripping you up. Now I'm confused as to which answer you're talking about is grape scented!

      Oh, I'm an idiot. I was thinking of the first answer i said....I gave two in my last response. The second must've been the correct answer....but just in case you wondered, there's a scented version of the first guess on Amazon.

      I can't believe you've never found flavored versions before! I should've included edible too, just to throw you off even further! Ha!

      Air freshener?

      My first thought is alcohol, but I'm sure that doesn't fit all the verses and isn't the correct answer.
