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 would use less end stopping, it makes the rhyme scheme too predictable. Also, use more images and less abstractions, show, not tell.

This is amazing at demonstrating all the junk we can get into when in love, and still be so happy about it! Love is so blind and still so full of life. I can really relate to the whole 'jerk' persona!
