Oblivion

Oblivion#4

Vuelvo al Sur (Caetano Veloso)

http://youtu.be/WR8OJmKR4Nk

I return to the South

like one always returns to the love,

I return to you ,

with my longing, with my anxiety.

I carry the South

like a destiny of my heart,

I am from the South

like the melodies of the bandoneon.

I dream of the South,

a huge moon, the sky reversed,

I am looking for the South

the open time, and its thereafter.

I love the South,

its good people, its dignity,

I feel the South,

like I feel your body in intimacy.

I love you South,

South, I love you.

I return to the South

like one always returns to the love,

I return to you

with my longing, my anxiety.

I love the South,

its good people, its dignity,

I feel the South

like I feel your body in intimacy.

I return to the South,

I carry the South,

I love you South,

I love you South...

    Love the poem! And the images are amazing! I am particularly fond of Oblivion #5 and Oblivion #3. Fantastic, and like the poem, they ooze beauty and longing.
