Everything You’re Not

I met someone new today.
He’s everything I’ve always wanted,
and everything you’re not.
He’s calm and reserved.
Where you’re barely my height
and solidly built,
he’s tall and lean.
He’s gentle and composed,
and you’re all in, all the time.
SO how come it’s still you I think of
when I lie awake in bed?
Why is it your face,
not his,
that I can’t make leave my head?
It’s your arms
I want to hold me
and pull me close at night.
I tried so hard to love him,
but my heart loves you instead.
He’s everything I’ve dreamed of,
and everything you’re not,
but it turns out,
when it’s all said and done,
you’re everything I want.

Prompt: Everything You’re Not
