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.

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.

This is really good. It reminds me of how a lot of high school aged guys are. They're jerks, and some girls just can't help but to fall for them for whatever reason.
