    Technically a riddle is a poem, so I put it here. I wrote this for a friend but thought that you all might enjoy taking a swing at it as well. Just post your guess below it if you'd like :)

    When you touch me,
    I come alive.
    The spell of your fingers
    pulls me from silence and
    into your thrumming body
    whose beat I sing
    to feel your life
    reverberating in my own.
    And as you inevitably fall away,
    whether up or down,
    I drop into monotone once again.
    What am I?

    You could even write your own, it's a lot of fun!

    Close, but not nearly as artistic as you would expect. The best thing about riddles is that they're usually about things you don't think twice about. :)

    Nope, that's not what I had in mind, though it makes perfect sense. But does a keyboard make a noise that can go 'monotone'?

    I'm thinking something kitchen based like a fridge or maybe a central heating system.
