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.

Sometimes people are beautiful
Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.

You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.

This is great! I would appreciate if some of you guys would check out the poem I just posted and would rate it. Thanks!

This world is just a battleground for ideals.

I cannot relate to this. I have a lot of 'jerks' as friends, but that's usually because they are intriguing--most unconventional people tend to be. Guy and girl jerks, the lot of them. This is my warning; the flow and rythmn was good. Some more vibrant word choice--ones that are dripping in anger and others in admiration--could very well portray the frustration you want to express.

Love this piece, it perfectly describes that even though you know someone is an absolute jerk, you still cant help but want him. When you step back and think about it it's really extremly silly but all us girls find ourselves doing it and no one knows why

“Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because God counts her tears. The woman came out of a man’s rib: Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved.”

live laught love

hope is love and forgivness

live life as if you die tomorrow

fake it till you make it

face up to the music an grab the bull by the horns

you never lose by loving you lose by holding back

its alright letting yourself go as long as you can get yourself back up

she never gave up on my mom is my hero

my mom had a great deal of trouble with me but i think she enjoyed it

i dont judge you for what you belief in so why judge mine.

I really like this poem I find myself cominng back to read it all the time.
