Fanvid: Don't Go Far Off

Author's Note: I stumbled across this gorgeous poem, which is perfect for Steve. And then I was lucky enough to find a beautiful audio of it on Youtube, so this vidlet simply had to be done. In a way it's a (slashy) companion to Shout, taking us through Steve & Bucky's history.

Don't Go Far Off, by Pablo Neruda
Don’t go far off, not even for a day, because —
because — I don’t know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don’t leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.

Don’t leave me for a second, my dearest,
because in that moment you’ll have gone so far
I’ll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?

    […] ETA: I made a Steve-centred vid that's a companion of sorts: Don't Go Far Off. […]
