I am an intricate fire,
requited or unattainable.
I rush to break
Put initiality in front of
what comes after individuality.
I am fleeting
I am a vigorous force
upon the heart of any;
I leave a great impact.
You are bound to have encountered me
more than once in life
in more than one form.
I am not anything hot
I am not really fire,
I am not a gas either.
yet I am fire and I do compress.
What on earth am I?
I'm only 13, and I never really tried making a puzzle. This site inspired me to try and form a unique puzzle. I don't know much about puzzles and riddles, and I know that it's a very unkempt attempt. Do correct me, instead of opposing me for my mistakes.
The answer to this riddle is a single five-letter English word. The word has several meanings. Only two broad meanings have been explored in this rhyme.
Hints: puberty, compress.
I've narrowed down the problem for you.
Finally, watch out for any red herrings!
I would approve an answer which...
- is correct
- can demystify all the clues
- provide an in-depth, reasonable interpretation of each line
In short, what I want is a solid comprehensive solution.
