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.

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!

This is such an amazing poem. If I had tried to describe that...well I just couldn't. But it's so relatable and simple. It's awesome. I love it.
