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.

Will someone please write a poem that isn't about themselves, their own problems or their love life?

Puke.

Ooo...makes me think about the fact that sometimes, no matter how stupid they are, we still love 'em.

Really cute <3 And I love the last two lines.
