Feminist Fridays: Taylor Swift as a Problematic Poet

HOW TO RUIN EVERYTHING by George Watsky | Review

RUN TO YOU by Pentatonix

POET by Bastille

Obsession it takes control, Obsession it eats me whole. I can't say the words out loud, So in a rhyme I wrote you down. Now you'll live through the ages, I can feel your pulse in the pages. I have written you down Now you will live forever And all the world will read you …
