Greasepaint of a different hue
All about him and not about you
Slip into character ready or not
Living all the twists in his devious plot
Into his self-aggrandizing script you’ll be written
Gasping as his rewrites leave your head spinning
Has he made you the star of this little show
There are more special effects than you could know
Extras on his casting couch abound
Replacing you in an instant for his next go round

NPD is a very real personality disorder. It isn’t “just” vanity, big ego or benign delusions that can be fixed by a partner or spouse. It is highly destructive and cannot be changed, regardless of anything you do. I was not aware of the difference, in fact, had no idea that NPD existed. Discovering this, putting a name to it, having a frame of reference for the actions and most importantly, knowing that NPD has a predatory aspect, has turned on a light in my life.
