my first ever rewrite

oceans emotions

a few days ago
i saw your face unexpectedly in a photo
and it was the heaviest anchor weighed upon my heart...
it was the most forceful wave of feeling and tears
I have felt in a very long time.
it felt so right
but I can't look too much longer
this picture may be the end of me
my lungs fill up with ache
my heart can't beat against the press
i drown in the photos of your eyes
I can't help but stare too long at the promise of your smile
because there's something about this memory of feelings
that's more real than the real feelings I barely feel now
