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.

Sort of an oxymoron isn't it? oh well. I'm the same way.

Fantastically snarky. The only awkward line is "am I yet yours?" It clashes with the tone of the poem and tripped me up the first time I read it. Other than that, it's an adorable poem. Keep up the great work.

and although hes a jerk, you can't stop loving him, can't stop having feelings for him. You want to slap him, to kick him, to key his car, you want him to say baby, i love you
story of my life.
we all want what we can't have
i know this feeling, and im pretty sure so does everyone else...
i want him.
Great poem! really relatable!
