Whenever I felt your hands delve into my skull,
I knew how you needed me most.
-Like putty in your hands; malleable.
If you were to reshape the things that make me, me,
Go in and fix what wasn’t broken and smash up the things you fixed.
-You needed me; vulnerable.
Always acting like the one with all the answers,
The first to speak up, last to shut up.
-You needed me silent; gullible.
To play me like a puppet,
Make me dance at your command,
-You needed me reliable; agreeable.
To validate yourself, in your own hour of weakness,
-You needed me.
