The clash between a charming outward image and the private reality is crushingly familiar to wives of Narcissistic Husbands. But what's behind the bravado?
You should know her life is haunted by some fantasies she’s had
of the knight who truly loves her and crowds of screaming fans,
who by magic all materialise with just one stranger’s smile.
She’s too proud to tell you that she’s feeling rather small
She’s too proud to tell you her back’s against the wall
She’s not above playing make believe her pain is all your fault
and if you show her any wound she’ll be sure to find the salt.
