Song of DarknessRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I slipped through hallways and corridors under the cover of night
For the most part unseen but sometimes giving people a fright
I fled my painful life to this strange fairytale of song
I only wished for happiness but often did what was wrong
The love of my life loved back for a time, then turned to another
But jealousy drove me to possess her, and that was my blunder
For her lover loved her deeply and wished for her joy as well
So he fought me at every turn, trying to break my powerful spell
In the end I let her go, for her I loved with all my soul
They left me here alone, and in my heart she left a hole.
HintFew people saw me in person
I was known for leaving notes
Dictating my instructions
Trying to achieve my secret hopes.
AnswerI am the Phantom of the Opera, also known as Erik or the Opera Ghost.
The title is a play on "Music of the Night".
