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 adore this. I like how the narrator is so wrapped up in this person, and yet she says he's a jerk all the same (I can relate...)

Very true sometimes with relationships. You can't get out of it even though its bad. Loved the poem and it had a nice pattern to it.

I love this! The best part of this poem, at least to me, is the first four lines. I love them!

My guy drives me nuts, but he isn't a jerk. He is super nice- but great poem anyway!
