Question

Deep, dark secrets I unfold

To the one who’s brave and bold.

Oftentimes I’m left to mold--

People think I’m just too old.

Those who see my treasure mine

Know that I’m more than a shrine.

Sometimes when I’m out of line

I make others’ problems mine.

What am I?

Is this your first riddle? This is incredible!!! I'm not kidding. This is an AMAZING riddle. Very well written, flow is better than my last (5 or so) riddles and I have no idea what it is. I LOVE it!!

oooo good one, I'd have to think hard about this one

just thinking.

the pyramids at Giza?

or perhaps

The sphinx?

I agree wholeheartedly. And while these were my first thoughts, the last two lines discarded them, in my opinion, which is why it's such an incredible riddle.

Thanks for the compliments, but it's not any of those. Sorry! Good guesses, though.

My very first thought was CHEESE, and I wanted to get that guess out of the way.

Nothing nearly so illustrious. Great guess, though. I think the wording and flow make it sound more important than it really is. Think... more... mundane.

Still nothing. How about another hint...

This is found in many buildings of all shapes and sizes.

Thanks for the hints. But, I recommend you be patient and not give any hints. Enjoy the thrill of your riddle being so good, that it takes a bit to get it right.

Thanks for the advice. :) Can you tell this is my first one? Anyway, at least you don't have to look at them.

No. That's what's so great about your riddle, it seems like a seasoned riddler's riddle. But, the many hints to have it discovered, does give it away some. But, even I have a hard time resisting hints, many times. But, mostly it's when I have a riddle, that I know (or think) wasn't very well written.

I agree with Lotus, this would be more simple if it weren't for those last two lines!

Sorry about that. The lines will fit when you know what it is, though.

you sure you want to see it?

Spoiler for reminder::

think mundane. very mundane. boring, even.
