Jerk This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

January 2, 2009
I love your voice,
your soft brown hair.
I love your eyes
and love your stare.

I love your laugh,
your cocky smirk,
your stupid jokes.
You precious jerk,

you know I do.
I want my hands
all through your hair
each treasured strand.

I’m wrapped around
your finger still.
Am I yet yours?
Your love does kill

the things I hold
so close to me
and yet you’re the
best jerk I see.

This poem is so meaningful, yet quirky. I think it pretty much sums up all good relationships. Keep writing, and If you have time, I know everyone asks; but your a good writer, so could i get your opinion on some of my work?

People call me jerk, but they do not know the things in my heart: regret, grief, and sorrow.

It's got a nice feel. You wrote it very well!!! I know this gets annoying and is kinda cheesy, but I really need some people to read over my poems. I was just wondering if anyone had the time to check out and comment any criticism on my post TeenInk.com/users/Tkenns much appreciated!!!
