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.


New Direction - Harry Styles is teasing the launch of his solo career

HARRY STYLES, WHO REMAINS PART OF ONE ‘ON HIATUS’ Direction, has dropped a short but dramatic trailer teasing his long-awaited debut solo single (out April 7). It’s 30 seconds long. There’s a bit of smoke. Harry’s hair looks nice and neat. Styles has been writing songs with Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, who wrote ‘Shape Of You’, among other Ed Sheeran mega bangers. Last year McDaid said that Styles’ solo material would ‘blow the socks off the world”, which is a genuinely delightful image.

“I don’t depend on my work to make me feel good about myself. When people invest their ego and their self-image in their work, and one day someone doesn’t look at it in the same way they do, or you grow up and your eyebrows get bushy and you don’t get parts, you fall so heavily and you hurt so bad.”
