Separate List from Microsoft Form

I need expertise in guiding me in the right direction. I have a text box in Microsoft Forms that users can copy and paste a list of email addresses (ie,, and my flow is setup to do an "Apply to Each" for each email address however I am having trouble figuring out how to parse and separate each email address from the string so that I can run the flow on each address.
