Taken by surprise

She was taken by surprise --
Thought women were immune.
We read of men who only feel
These two emotional ranges,
Happiness and rage.
All that they have
to feel all of life’s big changes.

They miss out on grief --
Men of steel,
Deaf to
All other tunes
Human hearts can sing.

But when the dog died,
She shut up inside
All the sorrow and
Tears were dammed.
Her grief
Only showed
In an explosion:
Rage was
Only outlet.
