Epiphany is defined as a moment of realization.
It's almost like Enlightenment,
When you realize the truth of something;
The real story; what was really meant.
For a long time you think
Someone is a great friend of yours.
You even think there is music between you;
You hope the friendship will gain force
Then there is that dreadful long period when you don't
See each other; except for a couple of hours once -
You chit-chat in a fast moving train. For long
You are separated by a reality called "distance"
Then the cause is removed, your friend is back
In town. You even send a poem to welcome her.
You start planning the much-awaited meeting
Where you can pick up the bits n go further
Days pass by. From the friend you sense a lack of intensity,
Eagerness. Not even a hint of interest in meeting,
Connecting. In catching up with you;
In closing the gap you find so vexing
That's when the epiphany hits you: you may
Have a one-person list. Your friend's is a long one,
Sorted in the order of priority and
You just have to wait for your turn!
