Riddle me this:
I speak without a voice, where you can see without an eye.
A heart without a beat, I hold, can make you laugh and cry.
I turn before I twist, but cannot twist before I turn.
A window without glass, I am, of which you view to learn.
What am I?
It took me a while to finish this riddle... as well as the answer.
If your eyes cross my back,
A surprise you might lack.
So then what could I be?
Read again and you'll see.
I am not a professional riddle-maker, I am just a hobbyist; i.e., my sentences might not make much sense, and in saying that, I changed the word

Ahh, finally I have resdiscovered the riddle that inspired me to write this one. Here it is! :D
