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.

It is good for a poem, but I think it could have been a lot better, I'm not quite sure where you were going with the whole jerk thing, maybe a bit more elaboration. But overall a cute peom, not something with substance, I think you have a talent but you should look into making poems deeper because I think you could do a great job.
