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.

Your poem is concise, yet beautiful in its simplicity. I like how you describe what girls, often, secretly think about those we are attracted to-- those physically gorgeous guys whose character, unfortunately, do not match their dreamy appearances.
