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.

i Really love this poem. I read it in the mag. It sticks out in a good way. Its a great poem, its all the way up there with Poe and Dickinson.... and it so applies to me.
