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 cannot relate to this. I have a lot of 'jerks' as friends, but that's usually because they are intriguing--most unconventional people tend to be. Guy and girl jerks, the lot of them. This is my warning; the flow and rythmn was good. Some more vibrant word choice--ones that are dripping in anger and others in admiration--could very well portray the frustration you want to express.

so you've never liked a guy/girl(don't know your sexual preference) thats kind of rude, but you can't help but like him?

Love this piece, it perfectly describes that even though you know someone is an absolute jerk, you still cant help but want him. When you step back and think about it it's really extremly silly but all us girls find ourselves doing it and no one knows why
