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 really liked this poem. I agree with what Jones said. I started this and was like, "Is this gonna be about the perfect guy?" I love how its not

This poem can be true with some guys. I know some girls that talk like this about some guys, but it usually turns out alright. When I started to read this poem, I thought the poem was going to be about how nice the boy is. After I read this poem, I knew the writer was not talking good about the boy. The writer was talking bad about the boy.

he can't get you back whenever he wants if you don't let him... don't go there anymore. My advice is to focus on yourself and go back to how you use to go about your day before he came along. You don't deserve to be hurt.
