A Poem by Heather Clayton

Once the tides come in
I can crawl my way back to you
so I can find a friend.
I can enter the hole I came from
because you know I'm red not blue.
With my beady eyes
I jiggle off sea foam. 
I will pinch you hard
until you see what I do.
Follow my word.
watch out! Because I'm not afraid.

Clinging to someone that understands you but hurting that person in the process. Been there.
