I was just reading through my old posts on my other blog, from when I was in Iraq, and found a poem I wrote.

It's strange, dipping into the past. I had forgotten half of what I was writing about (although it came back). Now, some memories are so clear, I can almost taste them. Or hear them. Or smell them.

Here's the poem:

Next year will be better, she said, 
kicking the gravel across the road 
Next year couldn't be any worse 
that's for sure. 
She fell over and died. 
Next year couldn't come now, 
and she was fine with it. 
Those that found her body 
couldn't see the scarring 
or understand why her 
soul ran out.

I used to write poetry like this when I moved to Egypt, things weren't going well, and I was alone. I hope you're well out of the Abyss of Melancholy now. :-)
