Saviour Complex – Written Tuesday 21st November 2006 (Aged 31)

Saviour Complex

saviour complex
blindly stumbling around
till a need is found
or a need,
is forced upon someone
intentions just reflecting the self
left on the very highest shelf
saviour complex
another branch of their personality tree
that has dug its roots so deep
anxiety, kicks around their sleep
believing they are right
and if for a second
they can save the world
the guilt will not be for life
and blame will be easily jilted
saviour complex
crazy headed intentions
designed to absolve the soul
seemingly harmless
but with a deadly heartbeat

James Garratt – Tuesday 21st November 2006
