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

January 2, 2009
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 feel the same way about someone but didn't know how to express it. Beautiful! Perfect imagery too. I loved it!

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!
