Rubber 

Rubber, 

I watched you stretch, as you took the stress, and strain off me; the shock absorber, that let itself melt, so I wouldn’t get hurt… 

I watched you stretch far past what I thought was your max, and then I watched you bounce back; the flexible insulator, that taught me how to conduct myself…

Rubber, the material that hides it’s strengths within its properties; I now see, that there are limits, even to your elasticity.I watched you turn stiff, snap, and become a different material completely.

Plastic. What you get, when rubber stops bouncing back.
