"I awaited a letter..."

I awaited a letter. You didn’t write.
I had a vision that a train had taken you.
It sighed once as it vanished from sight.
You were asleep and it didn’t waken you.
The elastic platform stretched far behind,
Then, like a leopard, it leapt for the train.
If you could look back, I’m certain, you’d find
Nothing remained, but a grimace of pain.
