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.

I love this. So true. Very easy for most girls to relate to. It had good flow, and your emotions came out really well. Excellent :] keep writing. Please check out some of my work, i'd really appreciate it
