There came a bird rainbow, flew out of your window.

My mind is filled with complete emptiness.

Whenever you give me a gesture, I wake up to meet you.

Then I wander around in Paradise like a vagabond.

We loved each other when you were so young,

but when you come to me too close, I shy away from you.

What am I?


Hint 1

The bird is featherless.

Hint 2

I'm a classic puzzler in arcades.

Hint 3

A specific, common object.

Hint 4

I'm unsustainable in the long run.

  • $\begingroup$ Cool. Your new answer is correct. Could you add more explanations about how the answer fits the hints too? $\endgroup$ – Coconut Jan 30 at 15:22
  • $\begingroup$ And the window a bird flies into? $\endgroup$ – Coconut Jan 30 at 15:37
  • $\begingroup$ I'm accepting your answer anyway. $\endgroup$ – Coconut Jan 30 at 15:37
  • $\begingroup$ Not really sure about the windows and the bird, sorry... English is not my first language, so maybe I'm missing something :) $\endgroup$ – OfFPiR Jan 31 at 10:53
  • $\begingroup$ It's alright. This has been neglected for like more than a week so I just kinda wanted to finish it up. Many thanks to your answer. $\endgroup$ – Coconut Jan 31 at 15:59

Is it

A shadow

There came a bird rainbow, flew out of your window.

My mind is filled with complete emptiness.

Shadows don't have minds

Whenever you give me a gesture, I wake up to meet you.

When we move the shadow moves as well

Then I wander around in Paradise like a vagabond.

A reference to the movie "Shadows in Paradise" maybe

We loved each other when you were so young,

Kids like to play with shadows (like making shadow figures with hands)

but when you come to me too close, I shy away from you.

If you walk towards it, it will keep moving in the direction you are moving

Is it

sleep/dreaming? you are dreaming about bird rainbows and our mind is empty when we sleep, whenever you move too much, you wake up, then you fall asleep again and wander in paradise. You loved sleeping when you were a baby, it was pretty much all you did, and if you try to sleep too fast you won't be able to, since you will only be thinking and not relaxing
