Taylor Swift certainly has a way with words.
So we aren’t surprised to learn that the blonde hitmaker penned an exclusive poem for her January cover story for British Vogue. And, as the old Taylor is dead in the ground (may she rest in peace), it only seems right that Miz Swift wrote a verse about letting go.
For her poem, titled The Trick To Holding On, the celebrated lyricist wrote:
“Let go of the ones who hurt you
Let go of the ones you outgrow
Let go of the words they hurl your way
as you’re walking out the door
The only thing cut and dry
In this hedge-maze life
Is the fact that their words will cut
but your tears will dry”
Beautifully said. She continued:
“They don’t tell you this when you are young
You can’t hold on to everything
Can’t show up for everyone
You pick your poison
Or your cure
Phone numbers you know by heart
And the ones you don’t answer any more”
We mean, Taylor needs to put these words to song. Swift concluded:
“Hold on to the faint recognition in
the eye of a stranger
As it catches you in its lustrous net
How quickly we become intertwined
How wonderful it is to forget
All the times your intuition failed you
But it hasn’t killed you yet
Hold on to childlike whims and moonlight
swims and your blazing self-respect
And if you drive the roads of this town
Ones you’ve gone down so many times before
Flashback to all the times
Life nearly ran you off the road
But tonight your hand is steady
Suddenly you’ll know
The trick to holding on
Was all that letting go”
The 27-year-old musician has definitely undergone quite the transformation recently.
In addition to her breakup with Calvin Harris and whirlwind romance with Tom Hiddleston, Swift was exposed for knowing about Kanye West‘s controversial song Famous before it was released. After laying low and finding love again, Taylor has finally resurfaced in order to promote her sassy Reputation era.
Keep living your best life, bb.
