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.

Wow. this is so concise and clear and exaclty what so many people feel. Its like that one really hot, special, funny, guy - who is such a jerk - but you can't stop kinda caring about him somewhere inside. Very very very well done.
