a phone book

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.
relaxing night in

• put on soft lighting, flickering candles, warm toned lamps and fairy lights
• throw a lot of blankets and cushions on your bed, or wrap yourself in with a soft blanket
• warm drinks, make yourself a cup of hot chocolate, tea or coffee
• wear thick cosy socks, oversized sweaters and pyjamas
• switch off your phone, read a good book, listen to music, watch a movie

gözlerimde bir yağmurlu gün başlar;
vakit ikindidir eyüp sırtlarında
bulutlar vardır, pembeden, beyazdan
mevsim sonbahardır sessiz ve taze.
nemli otlar, çekirgeler, solgun yüzün.
bir gülüş, bir mahzun bukle saçlarında
bir eski çiçeği andırırsın yazdan.
ve bir şarkı başlar kahvelerin birinde
bizi ömrümüzden alır götürür,
bir şarkı, faslı hicazdan

Why did no one every tell me that Onew decided one day to sing opera, and SM was like, sure?

And then he decided to choose an incredibly famous piece to do it with?

And then he decided in 2016 to bring it back, because he had something to prove?

Which just so happened to be that his voice has only gotten better after surgery?

Like seriously, watch these two performances. The first is from 2011, and well before he got vocal chord surgery. Then listen to the second, from 2016. Not only did he sound good in the first one, he improved in the second one. By a lot. The comments are full of Italians impressed by his pronunciation. In the first one, you can hear him struggle on the high note just a bit. He doesn’t even waver in the newer one. 

Basically, his vocal coach wasn’t lying when he said Onew got better after surgery.

Now, Pavarotti can never be surpassed, especially on Nessun Dorma. But holy shit can Onew sing. He has a voice that is he decided to sing the phone book, I would buy it so damn fast, it would give me whiplash.

Oh, and for extra emphasis, here he is singing it on a variety show. In case you thought it was a recording or something.
