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 adore this. I really do. I feel as though these were the words I had been so desperate to set to paper when I had been experiencing this.

Yeah... I suppose I am this jerk. I have been told it too many times, and when my friend told me to read this poem on teenink, I was hurt. Thank you... you have brought me back to reality and that helped me more than you can believe.

The rhyming was unneeded, only a certain amount of words can ryhme. And you're hiding. I don't feel as if this guy is a jerk. This is petty and cliche. The repetition wasn't effective, I felt as if it was kind of redundant.

Ah, yes. I had a "jerk" of my own before....As a matter of fact, I was engaged to him at one point...But I learned my lesson.  You did a wonderful job with this poem. :)

Just as everyone else is saying, it is very easy to relate. I have a 'jerk' of my own
