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.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Again, I'm sorry. I acted before I though, but this is a bad excuse and hardly an excuse and one that I will not hide behind or use. I know that I was not sensitive to that when I was suppose too, and that I should have thought before I acted. I know that it's not funny to have your heart broken or someone else's heart broken. I do not blame you if you think that I am not sensitive and stupid.

I apologize, @CeceE14. I know this is an amazing poem, I find this a phenomenal poem. I know it's not funny to have your heart broken, that I can connect too because I have had my heart broken. I apologize for being stupid and not sensitive to that, I'm sorry.

Your comments are nice, but it's NOT funny. This happens to real people all the time, and is one of the worst things a little girl can go through. This is an amazing poem, but it's not funny to have your heart broken

@carlmarks15: "Good try though! If at first you don't succeed, try, try again! :)" Really?! While I couldn't agree with you more about this poem and how it was written - I'm no fan of cliche topics and forced rhymes myself - I do think it was pretty phony of you to unleash such a harsh barrage on this person's work, only to follow it up with that little quip at the end: "Try, try again" - Like you think that'll make her feel any better? After having you tell her basically that her poem sucks and that it isn't even worth 1 star out of 5, among other things? You know, the poem may indeed suck, and I completely agree when you say it lacks originality. But you really didn't have to be so harsh. I mean, you did pretty much insult this person's work. And then to follow all that with your syrupy condolences: "Good try though!" Well, here's a tip for the future: leave the fake sincerity out of it. If you can't even be sincere in the rest of the post then don't wait until the very end to be 'nice' about it. Man, am I glad nobody shot my work down like this when I was first starting out, or else I probably would've stopped writing for good, right then and there. But anyway, your comment was less of a real critique (pointing out both the weaknesses and strengths of the poem, -plus- offering up good ways to improve the poem in general), and more like just you being unnecesarily harsh. "Good try though!" (Now do you see how that feels more like a slap in the face?)
