Never Get Me Back

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

Fun:*** (3.06)
Difficulty:** (1.54)
Category:Riddle
Submitted By:Pelikan*fi***

 

 

 



I can run swiftly and silently when you want me to stay still,
I can move slowly and cautiously and am yours to fill.
You look at me often and yet you always forget me,
I am the most feared killer, yet you can't live without me.
Sometimes you have me for all to spare,
Yet when you need me, I am not there.
You can waste me, or cherish me, you choose the track,
But once you're done you can never get me back.

Thanks for that. For me it was a little bit well spent and more for you to write! Nice treatment of a subject we all experience here if we can spare a little for entertainment!.. You got some of mine, now I get some of yours!

At first I thought it was water, until I got to the part about forgetting. By the end, I knew the answer, but it was fun! Made you think, but it was possible to come up with the answer! The best kind of riddle!

a very good teaser, but i had to look at the answer ithought
it was gasoline or oil, oil can't be replaced oh well maybe next time.

Jul 11, 2006

This was very well written and very thoughtful. I don't think it matters in the least that it was easy for some peeps, because it has value in itself.

Anyway, I GOT IT, YAY YAY YAAAY!!!!!

Lines 3,4,5 gave it away, now try this in your spare time, write your self an essay, describing time, without ever using the word in it. Goodluck. John

The last line gave the answer. A very well-written and thought-provoking teaser. You would have spent a lot of TIME in creating the poem. Excellent show!

Seriously easy. I am, however, amazed at the really excellent rhyming clues that these have.. Good job
thecatladycac**
Jul 11, 2012

I enjoyed your teaser very much - although I didn't come up with the right answer. I thought "water" at the first line, and I kept trying to make it work. When I finally decided that it was difficult to make it fit with all of the clues, I looked at the answer and thought "Of, Course!!" - Great Teaser
