A Possible Series of Riddles #8

Updated on April 17, 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?

Who am I, who am I?

Poke me right in the eye!

Will not cry, will not sigh,

If I were alive I could die!

Fluff 'n' stuff, fluff 'n' stuff,

For some, one is never enough!

I can be small or I can be buff,

Perhaps I am weak or really tough!

Oh no no, oh no no,

Without me some can't go!

Lift them up when they are low,

I cannot reap and cannot sow!

Can you see, can you see?

Youth will always desire me!

Take me with or let me be,

Will not move when I am free!

We are two, we are two,

Perhaps inseparable me and you!

Some won't know what to do,

If we aren't stuck just like glue!

What am I for, what am I for,

Carry me right through the door!

We can play on the floor,

Take me flying and we can soar!

I take shape, I take shape,

I could even be a grape!

Perhaps I am like an ape,

Or better within a seascape!

Setting Difficulty

As a solver of my riddles I don't want you to feel discouraged if you cannot solve one, you are performing an essential function for me as I play the riddler. Other than just entertaining you and myself with the riddles and associated guesses, you are helping me to categorize my riddles into difficulty levels. We have a very symbiotic relationship. Without the riddler there are no solvers, and without the solvers there is no riddler.

Thank you for your generous services!

      Imaginary friend?

      Kyler J Falk 

      6 weeks ago from Corona, CA

      Nope! I'll think upon it as I write, Shauna, because I want people to have fun as much as I want my riddles to be difficult. If I offer a sort of mental process to use, it won't ruin the riddles but it will give people a new perspective on how to see the riddles they might not be using already.

      Kyler, please don't write a how-to for your riddles. That would take away the fun!

      I hope you do! I'm in the process of writing a "How To" for breaking down my riddles and solving them. Perhaps it will help others when I finish it, or perhaps it will just be revealing my thought process. I hope it will help.

      It is rare, bordering on unthinkable, that I will ever include the answer in the riddle itself.

      A good guess, but no. These are definitely based in a blend of literal and metaphorical expression, makes them more difficult.

      I think I am total rubbish at solving riddles like this. The only thing that comes to mind is "shadow" but as I have never solved any of these types of riddle in the past, I doubt I will solve it mow. The type of riddle I know I can do is the kind that says something like, "my first is in paper but not in chase", etc. These are more logical, whereas I think your type of puzzle in more intuitive.
