The Ghost Train

Sleep perennial echos 
that haunt my silent grieving 
that ties me to your side forever
take me back a lifetime to before 
when I willingly drowned in my own self pity 
as a parody of the man I once never was, 
that place where I was happiest 
the instant that was the ghost train 
where that moment, my moment, 
sustained my want.

    "as a parody of the man I once never was," - the honesty of this line made me smile so big! Wow! You have made your poem vulnerable and sweet.
