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

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.

you're definitely right! Maybe not about everything you said, but guys, c'mon you can't be a real writer without getting some critique. Some skills and arts in life are like "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!" Writing is not one of them. If all you want is undying praise and you're scared of critique, then please don't post your work to the public.
