I think as if I were is correct, rather than as if I was. To me were sounds better. I used to be a person who corrected grammar papers, but I've forgotten a lot of rules. Here is what Google said:

It will make you sound smarter and it is technically correct since "the subjunctive mood is used to express a wish or possible situation that is currently not true." It's if I were for hypothetical in the present or future and if I was when talking about something presumed true in the PAST

I think it is a lovely poem.
