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.

I love how this poem can relate to 99% of the girl population. There's so many guys out there that are jerks and so many girls fall for them.

Pretty good. I like it mostly because of the picture 'cuz i love my cowboys ;) but it rhymed some of the time and then kind of faded away, I really like the concept and can tell that you put yourself into the writing, very good just make sure that its not the stereotypical poem about that boy that broke my heart kind of thing.
