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 completely agree. I could see this as a Taylor Swift song...

But lovely writing, I can relate.

I also like a guy thathas brown hair.

This fits him perfectly, except the jerk part. He's actually sweet.

Omg this is fantastic!! For some reason I picture the trypical crush...taunting you with his ... you know ... jerkiness. Awesome job! I know I'm not being original, but that flowed really well!! The world needs some more simple, strong poems like this. Keep going!
