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.

Right down to the brown hair and amazing eyes. :P Wonderful, and the best description of love that there really is. Not the happiness, but the pain.

I love how you wrote this poem for the majority of teenage girls to relate. Why is it that we are all attracted to jerks??

You arent all jerks! girls can be stupid too!(: reallyy, its easier for guys than girls! girls get a bad rep for just kissing someone sometimes.. guys can sleep around and still be popular and not called names other than a "player" which is no big deal!(: so dont think that!! girls just get annoyed easier than guys cus we get judged too hard! and most guys come off to be jerks because of this.
