    Default One day baby, we'll be old

    I'm generally shit at these but this one formed in my head this morning, probably either painfully obvious or too poorly structured to work, but here goes.

    We’ve met before but you didn’t know it
    Our encounter was more than you could stomach
    If you look for me you may not find
    But I’m in your sight and I’m on your mind
    I am a bookshelf, I am a snake
    I make man plant and animal quake
    If I wanted you to, you would die
    But on your suffering I rely
    Beyond the scope of light, beyond the reach of Dark. . . what could possibly await us?
    And yet, we seek it, insatiably. Such is our fate. . .

    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Did you write this riddle razz?

    I like it.


    The line " I make man plant and animal quake" may be a key.

    While I have no clue to the answer...I like this.

    It appears well constructed and thought out.
    This appears that thought and skill were used.
    I suspect there may have been some " research" too.


    Without knowing the answer...this may be a display of art... a skill.

    You're on the right track with biology, but think of a more specialized concept.

    All incorrect.


    Typically how long should one way before revealing the answer, if at all?

    Maybe too early to reveal the answer.
    A little hint is always appreciated
