#Dylan says DON'T THINK TWICE IT'S ALL RIGHT #heartbreak #love #breakups #poetry
A close friend recently said, 'Sim you always move on. Somehow you're always okay.' I believe she was referring to my divorce and recovery from this life crucible. I'm not going to say life doesn't get me down on occasion or more accurately that certain human relations have not disappointed me -- hurt, betrayed, humbled or even incinerated to ash my faith in love -- but it is true, I tend to move along. So shall I admit that I have a secret weapon or even explain it? Why not, maybe it will help others who are suffering from the jagged barbs of relationships or from the rather confusing sense of 'what the hell just happened' our hearts scream to our brain. Cause in the end there is no such thing as logic in love or love in logic.
My trick is in this song: DON'T THINK TWICE IT'S ALRIGHT. by Bob Dylan. Forgiveness, acceptance and in the end distance, well that pretty much says it all. The line that always gets me the most is here: 'And there ain't no use in turning on your light babe. I'm on the dark side of the road. But I wish there was something you would do or say, to try and make me change my mind and stay, but we never did too much talking anyway, but don't think twice it's alright.' If this doesn't sum up post relationships feelings of 'why didn't you' and 'well we never really did' and well 'never mind don't think twice it's okay.'
Genius. Hope it helps the next time you're on the dark side of the road.
