On Your Ex-Boyfriend

He called me once, you know

I was in the shower and he called me

Not once, but over and over until I answered

He asked me how to love you

What presents to get you

Where to take you on dates

He asked me how to love you and

All I could say was

“I don’t know why you’re asking me

Obviously I did something wrong because

You’re dating her”

But in my heart I was smiling

Because I never had to ask ANYONE

How to love you.
