Hellion

Arrogant little freak
Assassin in the undergrowth
Marauder, ravaging my soul

Bandit, betrayer
Hellion, destroyer
Instigator of my ruin

Primordial, sensibility
Driving me insane
Slashing at my psyche
 
But I’m feisty and prepared
A quarrelsome girl
I’ll fight you tooth and claw
Won’t take your shit, anymore

I’m ornery and battle worn
A fractious little madam
I’ll fight you tooth and nail
Your distorted lies, I will unveil

On the surface a battler
Standing guard by my garrison
Protecting my vulnerabilities
 
Radical emotions
Beating me to a pulp
Scorching to the core

Primordial, sensibility
Driving me insane
Slashing at my psyche

(outro)
But I'm feisty, ornery and quarrelsome
Battle worn, prepared and fractious
I'll fight you tooth, nail and claw
Won't take shit from you, anymore

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Thank you to Hooded Stranger, for all his help with this song.
Editing stage:

I really like:

But I’m feisty and prepared
A quarrelsome girl
I’ll fight you tooth and claw
Won’t take your shit, anymore

I’m ornery and battle worn
A fractious little madam
I’ll fight you tooth and nail
Your distorted lies, I will unveil

Great song. I love it! I have no suggestions, only appreciation for the work!

I salute anyone who breaks the rules in the interest of art and great poetry writing just as much as I admire poets who craft meter and verse within the confines of good grammar. Walk the tight rope or jump from it and see if you can fly.

Thanks bud, I am pleased that you found it , I thought it was another poem that was gonna be ignored , was thinking of giving up on this site, thanks for restoring my faith.

Love Louise xx
