Jerk This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

January 2, 2009
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 love this! The best part of this poem, at least to me, is the first four lines. I love them!

I love how this poem can relate to 99% of the girl population. There's so many guys out there that are jerks and so many girls fall for them.
