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.

This is great! I love the way you use the word "jerk" in an affectionate way. :) I can totally relate to that!

it IS really good, i just don't like when it looks like somebody put rhyming their words over their true emotions or getting the feeling out JUST RIGHT, and i feel like u had to do that in the second to last stanza's last line...

don't get me wrong; i've done it, too, and it bugs the crap out of me when i let myself submit to that.
