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.

This is good, but if you want to get better you may want to try writing more free verse. Sometimes, trying to commit to "singsongy" rhyme schemes really limit your creativity.

This is the scary truth of the players that obviously know their way around the heart

I have a boy that everyone else seems not to like but i see him differently. He can be a jerk sometimes but i learn to live with him. I found a nice jerk, too. Keep up the good writing and hope you go far. This poem is right from the heart and deserves a 5 star rating.
