I could visit the darkness,
if the sky would but let me,
But I venture as far,
as explosions will get me

I leave markings behind me,
when I breathe out just right,
but I don't really care,
if it's morning or night.

I rely on the touch,
of a woman or man
To give up my thoughts,
in the air, or on land.

If none of the people
I need can be found,
My record of deeds,
may be found on the ground.

Who am I, and how do you know?

Is it ...

... an Airplane?

I could visit the darkness, if the sky would but let me,

An Airplane could go to space, if air density allowed it.

But I venture as far, as explosions will get me

Turbine fire could be seen as a set of continuous explosions

I leave markings behind me, when I breathe out just right,

Condensate stripes

but I don't really care, if it's morning or night.

Can fly any time of day

I rely on the touch, of a woman or man To give up my thoughts, in the air, or on land.

Needs a pilot to steer and read and interpret instruments

If none of the people I need can be found,

Oh my god they're all dead!

My record of deeds, may be found on the ground.

Black Box after crash

  • $\begingroup$ Nice work! The explosions referred to the combustion occurring, but I'll call that semantics =D. Also, I like your interpretation of "give up my thoughts." I had originally referred to disabling auto-pilot. $\endgroup$ – Khale_Kitha Mar 8 '16 at 18:18
  • $\begingroup$ Thx :) ! Did you make this riddle yourself or did you find it somewhere? $\endgroup$ – AndreasT Mar 8 '16 at 18:25
  • $\begingroup$ If none of the people I need can be found part made me laugh out loud. $\endgroup$ – Aycan Yaşıt Mar 8 '16 at 18:56
  • $\begingroup$ @AndreasT I'm trying to only add riddles that I've made up on here, honestly. It makes the game far more interesting, to me. $\endgroup$ – Khale_Kitha Mar 8 '16 at 19:08
  • $\begingroup$ @AycanYaşıt Yeah, I spent about 10 minutes deciding what I wanted that whole paragraph to say. =D - And the response made me laugh, too =D $\endgroup$ – Khale_Kitha Mar 8 '16 at 19:08
