Jerk This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I love your voice,
your soft brown hair.

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.

Her lovely green eyes shifted into hard emeralds.
“What do you know about me, Dare? And what’s so wrong with having dreams? And why are you talking to me like that? I was simply commenting on the sunset.” She tossed her red curls, clearly miffed.
I lifted my chin, and blew smoke in her face. It was easier on me when she was angry. I don’t know why she bothered with me. Why she was brave enough to confront me... (more »)

that was delicately put the way you enticed how he hated the way he felt about her and how he felt like perfection was so evil to him. it broke my heart when i read that. why can't a guy just see what's right in front of him...thank you for writing that. it really was beautiful.

Awesome! =) This described right on the spot people who we logically know we shouldn't love, knowing that they are jerks and will lend us in no good, but can't help being attracted to!
