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.

Jerk's response:
You are annoying,
I hate your face,
You come over,
you are always in my place.
You are like a pest,
always bugging on.
But your cute as well,
You love me I can tell.
I see it in your eyes,
but I can't bring myself,
to say goodbye.
You are a bug in my hair,
but I guess you can stay.
I like you by my side, anyways.

I like how the poem transitions from a loving tone to calling the guy a jerk and still describes how she loves him.

I like the love-hate relationship theme, I believe it is very powerful.

I like the way that the poet gives a clear description of how the guy looks. It makes you get a vision of what the boy looks like and acts like.

I like how you used bold and sophisticated words followed by the word jerk. It added to the love-hate relationship you feel. Very well done.

the compliments followed by the "insults" does a really good job of showing what love is really about

Even though I walk through the darkest valley I will fear no evil. Psalm 23:4, For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you, not harm you plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

This is so true! I love the honest voice and if I was honest I have a such a relatable situation. That is what I love about poetry. Also, I was wondering if you could look at my work and possibly share them. Great Job!
