The End of the Riddle

Question

Posted · Report post

I’m the end that brings the end

I’m the one that hides.

Shackles gird me waist to toe

Sealed in tower I.

Ever tasked to make amends,

Slowly here I die.

My stricken foe you’ll never know

His death is met with sigh.

the needle end of a thread, making a mend, maybe a stitch in time?

a desk pen

I’m the end that brings the end ~the tip of the pen writes "the end" at the end of stories

I’m the one that hides.~ when you need a pen, you can never find one

Shackles gird me waist to toe~ a desk pen is tethered to the desk by a chain

Sealed in tower I. ~if a fountain pen it must sit in it's tower of ink

Ever tasked to make amends, ~used to write sorry letters, or organize bank accounts

Slowly here I die.~pens slowly die by running out of fluid

My stricken foe you’ll never know~used to write an angry anonymous letter

His death is met with sigh. ~it's always a bit frustrating when your pen dies or runs out of ink.

EDM, that fits exactly! It's got to be,

eraser on the end of a pencil

MAN, I REALLY THOUGHT MY PEN IDEA WAS GOING SOMEWHERE. IT'S THE BEST SHAKEEPUDDIN ANSWER I'VE COME UP WITH YET. BUT HORRAY TO EDM FOR HER FANTASTIC BRAIN AND ALWAYS STELLAR CONTRIBUTIONS. WAY TO GO! OOps.I just realized i've been shouting this whole time. truly not my intent. This doesn't change the sentiment, though. ~RMZ

hello. been a long time since I posted here. anyway great riddle. oddly enough I came up with another answer that I was sure was it, but when I checked the answer it was not. I probably prefer the intended answer, but here's what i thought:

the wick of a candle

I’m the end that brings the end - the tip of the candle that brings its own demise

I’m the one that hides.- inside of course

Shackles gird me waist to toe - the wax

Sealed in tower I. - the candle as a whole

Ever tasked to make amends, - candle fire can mend things, like the wax seal on an envelope or torn cloth. granted it's not used nearly as often as an eraser to mend

Slowly here I die. - burns away

My stricken foe you’ll never know - again, eraser fits better here I admit, but I would venture to say that the wick's foe is fire which we never know since it is inanimate

His death is met with sigh. - fire is blown out
