Halfway to Nowhere

We met for no reason, halfway to nowhere,
Somehow you deceived my illusion-proof mind,
You told me a tale of a perfect affair,
I wrote it in rhyme, but I left it unsigned. 

I drown reminiscence in sweet alcohols,
Your wraith disappears in front of my eyes,
And I realize every memory's false,
But how can I break these invisible ties?

Your tenderest words are replayed in my head,
The echo of wisdom repeats: "It's a lie".
I'd like to believe you or simply forget,
But I can do nothing. It's pointless to try.

I'd like to believe I'll be ever alive
In some of your dreams, in the depth of your heart,
But when you are ready to take a deep dive, 
You might well discover I've fallen apart. 

I've sworn to myself I won't yield to despair,
This time I won't wait till my blood all runs dry,
I'll probably meet you halfway to nowhere
To kiss you once more and to tell you goodbye.
