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.

I am also completely head over heals for this jerky guy. You're a fantastic writer by the way. If you don't mind, I'd love to hear your opinion of my poem Broken Structure. Cheers. :)

Is rediculous a good thing now? I thought it was quite serious in a way.

I love the little contrast thing going on here, that beautiful jerk whose controlling, but you love him anyway. This is so true to life, the strange things in people we pick up and come to love. Very nicely done.

I think you have a great rhythm going and good rhymes, but there are some lines that could be made more powerful. For instence, "Your love does kill" loses some of its bite because the word 'does' isn't doing a lot of work. I would rework that line.
