I trace an arced line,
While the spiral below me provides the sublime.

What am I?

Good riddle, thanks!

THAT'S A VERY BIG BINGO!!!

And it's very rewarding to know that you were thinking over the riddle in your otherwise downtime like that!

I really didn't think this was much of a solid riddle until I tried it out and I'm very pleased that it gave that "click" response for you...

Damn... Now what next... Hmmmmm

Also a very good answer but not likely to happen any time soon...

If i can post one (don't know the rules) :

It makes a sound as loathsome as the voice of Satan,
and you are more exposed when it cannot move behind you.

That is quite ridiculous, and false  :=

I thought it was logical...

A fart sounds quite horrible and if you are backed up against a wall when releasing one then people in front of you are much more likely to detect it.

Also, it's not very nice to claim "ridiculous" or "false" on guesses to your riddle unless it is of the very rare variety that has only one possible solution.

and you are more exposed when it cannot move behind you.

I'll have another shot at it:

"a sound as loathsome as the voice of Satan"

Well, then it makes no sound at all as Satan, and his voice, doesn't exist.

So, a silent thing...

"and you are more exposed when it cannot move behind you."

So, if it gets behind me then I'm less exposed to it...

Is it UV rays?

Not UV :) It does make a sound.
The satan line is tied to the famous saying "vade retro Satanas" (get thee behind me, Satan).

Basically it is something that makes a terrible sound, and somehow you are more exposed to it when it cannot get behind your back.

Not really, though according to old wives tales it is said to go after the less deviant. Although most likely it just attacks anyone and makes no discrimination by bad blood.

Despite the added clue (bad blood) I think it is better to just give the answer, so as to allow others to post their own riddles :)

The diversion about Satan, along with the inferred phrase 'get thee behind me' likely did not really allow for thinking of so lowly a being making that sound and leaving you exposed all the more when you aren't lying in bed on your back (so it cannot get behind you, and more of your body- including all of your face- is open to attack). The answer is just the humble mosquito  :P

Ahh that was actually a good riddle Kyriakos. I think one of us would have got it eventually.

I’m working on one but trying to make it not too easy.
