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.

This is really good!

It reminds me of a Roleplay I do with my friend, I have a character, Lavi, who's of course a total jerk, and my friend's character, ayam, falls in love with him despite it.

This so sounds like something a lot of girls can relate to, and I absolutely love it, it's spectacular.
