You may want it here.

But if you have it real,

it will bite.

You'd want it out.

Carefully, do it right.

But be quick,

You don't want a lime.

What is that?

PS. I changed the wording of the riddle, hopefully it is less ambiguous now.

  • $\begingroup$ @ A E - not really. Perhaps I might add some more information, but don't want to give away too much. $\endgroup$ – Maria Deleva Aug 20 '16 at 11:00
  • $\begingroup$ @AE if there are so many valid answers, why there isn't even one that fits all the clues entirely? $\endgroup$ – Maria Deleva Aug 20 '16 at 11:19

    $\begingroup$ Is the English awful for a puzzle related purpose, or is it just because it's not your native tongue? $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Allan Aug 20 '16 at 11:30

    $\begingroup$ Mostly the "you may want it here", and "get it real" as they do not quite make sense; but almost every line seems quirky in some way... $\endgroup$ – Jonathan Allan Aug 20 '16 at 11:36

I guess the answer is

tick

Because

You may want them here (the answer accepted ticks on SE), but you don't want them (the tiny arachnids) in your home.

  • $\begingroup$ You may want that in real. It doesn't really fit, unless I am missing something from your answer. $\endgroup$ – Maria Deleva Aug 20 '16 at 10:41
  • $\begingroup$ In india there's actor name called shahrukh khan.....first time i saw him on a airport....when i was approaching towards him...peoples already gathered around him..n block his way to reach their car...i think he took 2 hours to walk 200m distance.....so fame can cost you $\endgroup$ – Numberknot Aug 20 '16 at 10:54
  • $\begingroup$ Still, the thing I am referring to - you wouldn't want it in the first place. A lot of people want fame. No one wants this. $\endgroup$ – Maria Deleva Aug 20 '16 at 11:01

I think it is

Pokemons

You may think they are cute and adorable but

They are creatures that may easily kill you

    $\begingroup$ Someone could still want them regardless. :) $\endgroup$ – Maria Deleva Aug 20 '16 at 11:16
