Southbound Train

Love letters lie in the rain
photographs drift in the breeze
ink eddies dark down the drain.
Love letters lie. In the rain,
a slow-moving sad southbound train
is leaving the platform where these
love letters lie. In the rain,
photographs drift in the breeze.

I love the fourth line, when the repeat of line one changes everything. Awesome.

I loved your structure. It is very rare to find someone who truly employs the poetic tools at his disposal.
