A Riddle of Riddles

A sword…cutting, flaying, slaying
A candy…sugary, tantalizing, pleasing
A song…edifying, mesmerizing, bewitching
A dream…promising, comforting, exciting
A kiss….longing, exploring, claiming
An embrace…soothing, groping, desiring
An act…submitting, dominating, gratifying

What am I?


Words...A world, a heaven, a moment, an eternity, 
A universe...

    Ok, so I'm an idiot... I should change the title of the poem. The first part of the poem is the riddle....the answer is WORDS...

    You set a riddle indeed my little Desert Orchid, one that has dumbfounded us mere mortals since time began, maybe one day we will find the answer. You put the question perfectly in this poem. Take care, Richard

    Little Desert Orchid is a smart little girl...or perhaps a total dolt because apparently, this little poem was a bit confusing for everyone. Yes, I feel sorry for you, Mr Seal...for you ARE a mere mortal...with foibles and weaknesses. I will talk to my fellow gods and goddesses and see if you cannot touch you with a bit of our virtues and immortality. Thanks for stopping by
