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.

Nice description.... I like how you say, 'you precious jerk'. That is very descriptive and shows just how you feel. Nice job!

This reminds me of a certain someone-- it's so friggin true dude. It's a great poem too, I'm glad it's in the magazine. You weren't one of those people who only rhyme for the sake of rhyming; it was cohesive. Anyways, really, really awesome.

I love this poem. It's like how I feel about someone I know. Or felt,that is.

It seems so. . . . devious, and almost satirical, I don't know it speaks to me and makes me feel emotions that I can't describe. . . I love the line, you precious jerk its like the sarcastic way you make fun of this jerk of yours is so. . .. piercing? I don't know, I like it, though!

"I love your voice,
your soft brown hair.
I love your eyes
and love your stare."
That verse just spoke to me!

The rhyme at the end is kind of weak, but the rest is great

that was AMAZING...so 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.
