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.

She does like him, but just because she likes him doesn't mean he's not being a jerk. Try rereading the poem and paying attention to all the words, try to feel what kind of emotions would lead you to say those exact words.

Anyway, great job, this peice actually digs quite deep into the complications of love. Congrats on getting into the magazine :)

I love it. This is how I feel. This guy has me wrapped around his finger and he doesn't care if he hurts me. I love this poem and you go on with your work. It's amazing. :)
