Finding home

I'm becoming ridiculously sentimental.
 
It happens every time I realise I've got to leave this city. Like the nomad I have become, I know my time is up. And despite the comfort that I know I'll see these people and these streets again soon, I can't help but search for a way to bottle the essence of this place.
 
Every experience I have introduces me to a new Damascus. And this time I think I've found my Damascus.
 
And that makes it all the more difficult to leave.
