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.

Jerk,this was a very calming and soothing poem. The author showed their true feelings about that person which really touched my heart.

Wow, do you people do that just for fun?  I've had fake users comment on my stuff before, and I just laugh at your immaturity.  But I'm curious, do you look for a certain poem to comment on, or is your retared little comment thing just on random poems?

And BTW, This is such a great poem i loved it!  :)

I always love when i see a poem speak purely from mindflow-it doesn't even matter what its about if it's "real"-i dont mean real as in fiction nonfiction but real like truly from you (the author) :) keep it up dude :P

well done! i think this is a great example of how love is inevitable and we can help if who we love is a 'jerk' or not

Totally relatable!  Great job.  This is beautiful but seems to have a bit of sarcastic humor too.  Love it!
