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'm also going through this right now, I was in a relationship with this guy who I absolutley adored. He was my first real love. It's over now, I was heartbroken when he ended it. It was earlier on this year and I'm with someone else now but I still think about him and I love it when he is around
