saviour complex

he wanted to destroy the world
so he could be the one to save it;
and this was who he was –
a man who would extinguish candles
that he might set them aflame again
to claim the role of light-bringer;
he was a destroyer first
that he might become a creator last
and bask in the glow of thanksgiving.
