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.

“Jerk” Your poems are the ones I like to read. I am a freak for romance. You captured how he looked and traits, so your readers could have a image of what he looked like. You did a great job on this.

Literally made my heart hurt. There's a guy that is a total jerk, but I still have a crush on him..... but for me one of the aspects is the delicious cologne..

No, you're right. It is plagerism if she takes credit for it.
