Decade/Decayed

1999: I looked at you, you looked like change.

2000: Two birthdays and still the same.

2001: I broke my back and grew a spine.

2002: Dates. A ring. We got engaged.

2003: The white of dress and something blue.

2004: Baby names, a girl is due.

2005: In place of her you cried in pain.

2006: We held on, still the distance grew.

2007: I drink too much to see you cry.

2008: You blamed me until you got tired.

2009: Left no more talks but of divorce.

We lived a love, a love that died.
