I Am Satisfaction

Updated on March 29, 2015

She doesn't deserve to be loved

cause she's been damaged.

She wasn't built

to be cherished.

She is strong, she is hustling,

but she will never ever feel accomplished.


I won't let her

because I am satisfaction

and I won't let her touch me.

She runs, she reaches,

but the bitch can't grab me.

I laugh, she cries, she gets up and tries again.

I'm shaking my head again

she will never win.

Her mouth is watering.


She doesn't deserve a career,

she dropped out of school four times.

She talks to God, but I've got him on the other line

don't protect her soul, I'll always stand in the way.

She will never find satisfaction.


I am her demon.

I will be her downfall.

She's so pressed to stick to her morals.

I'm gonna make her fall hard and desperate.

She will be helpless as I'm laughing.

I want to see her white flag

and then, I might give her a lil' something,

but she can't have no satisfaction.


A kiss from a prince is not enough.

A million dollar win is not enough.

A few drinks at the bar,

don't give her a large enough buzz.

She will never truly know

what she wants.

A tear on her cheek is not enough.

Death in her sleep won't hurt enough.

Her life is a game and I hold all the cards.

You become good at what you do,

when you find out who you are.

I'm evil.


She can't get this,

but her ambition is cute.

I wish I could put her positive

mantras on mute.

She said she is a soldier.

Well, I'm ready to show her a war.

I am satisfaction

and I will be sure

to always cost a dollar more

than she can afford.

      Planning for revenge in a tasteful way. I love the demon metaphor. It just suits my style.

      Satisfaction was the bi*** well written from a different perspective. Certainly drawn in and shown a separate side of the meaning to be satisfied. Thank you.

      I dare anyone to read that first stanza and not being drawn into the drama that follows. Nicely done. Congratulations and thank you.

      The protagonist is facing an inner conflict or struggle. It seems that she's trying to hard to prove her worth to him. By learning to love herself and not expect anything less than what she deserves, she will start learning to break the pattern of foolish love. If my interpretation of this poem is correct, she needs to kick satisfaction to the curb. voted up!

      "She runs, she reaches,

      but the bitch can't grab me.

      I laugh, she cries, she gets up and tries again."

      Damn! That last line was like the knockout punch. I don't see you write for a while and this is what you come with. You gotta take breaks more often. LOL! I hope you're reading this on the show.

      I never thought of satisfaction as being evil until now ... I kept hearing the Rolling Stones in my head for some reason, too. What's the old saying? "A man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?" Nicely done.
