Cupid carried two different types of arrows: one causing uncontrollable desire and the other triggering whomever was struck to flee. Here, Swift reflects on her role as both the aggressor and victim in her romances.I've been the archer, I've been the prey
Screaming, who could ever leave me, darling

Failed relationships is familiar thematic territory for Swift; the songstress has written about instances when she's the one who inflicted the emotional pain in tracks like "Back To December
," when she messed up her romance with Taylor Lautner. Other times, she's recounted her own heartache, like in "White Horse
" when she recalls how her boyfriend "went and let me down."
