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.

I really like this poem!  You write so your reader can relate easily.  Reread your last stanza and consider the rhythm of the last 2 lines.  There might be a better way to end it, so it still rhymes but the rhythm stays the same as the entire poem.

I feel like it's not as well written as many poems on this website that were not published, and the wording is a bit akward sometimes.

Ah, I'm one of those weird people who goes through their note books just to read the quotes, so finding a fav is hard for me... 'There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is in having lots to do and not doing it' - Mary Little ;)

She does like him, but just because she likes him doesn't mean he's not being a jerk. Try rereading the poem and paying attention to all the words, try to feel what kind of emotions would lead you to say those exact words.

Anyway, great job, this peice actually digs quite deep into the complications of love. Congrats on getting into the magazine :)
