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 dont know why you would say anything about guys being jerks. cause im sure they are just messing around with you and then girls take are to heat so i think boys are the nicest people replied...

shes not saying hes an actual JERK, well she is but shes saying shes in love with a jerk. If you were a girl you'd understand billy.  Shes not saying all boys are jerks and that girls dont take things to the heart, shes saying shes inlove with someone who is most likely a jerk.

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.
