Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department is a repeat worthy album that reveals more and more with each listen, but we’re expanding the responsibilities of the department to express our feelings online. We dug through the entire anthology for lines that capture our best and most poetic moments in a line or two. Whatever you’re feeling, poets, remember these lines are always up for interpretation.
