2 Love Poems

At the first glance

I did not want to dance,

you might be my last chance.

And with that letter

I wrote with a feather,

Hoping I could be seen as much better.

In all the confusion

Of our mind's Illusion,

I think we can meet our ending conclusion.

Closer and closer

I yeilded to closure,

Ive lost all my composure.

Arrogant and prideful,

you were really and eyeful,

but you werent very mindful.

Pride can be a gift and a burden,

It seemed you didnt care

who you were hurtin'.

My mixed emotions

was like a dose of a potion,

my walls knocked down

I swear I AM open.

Like an untamed fear,

It soon became clear

That our fate would be mere.

Character Analysis

Darcy is a very interesting character to do an analysis over. My character views himself as an independent, wealthy man who likes the finer things. He thinks about his social status is super important and this causes some conflictions internally when he engages a relationship with Elizabeth. He is overly conscious about what everyone will see in him if he loves someone else in such a low class. “She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me, and I am in no humor at present to give consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men.” This quote states that he doesn’t think too highly of Elizabeth. Her social class because the other men being of another social class as well.

Darcy at first isn’t viewed as a very nice man when he is first introduced in the story. At the first ball Elizabeth over heard Bingley and Darcy’s conversation. Darcy’s refusal to dance with her caused some anguish from Elizabeth with him. Bingley’s sister has an eye out for Darcy though. She wants to ruin Elizabeth’s chances of Darcy liking her. “I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.” Here Elizabeth demonstrates her distaste for Darcy.

Interestingly Darcy has a change of heart towards Elizabeth, he has always found her as extravagant; but his internal conflictions contradicted his true feelings of her. He eventually proposes his love for her and she refuses him harshly because he suggested that Bingley shouldn’t marry Jane. So he writes a letter to her clearing up his act for why and what he had done it for. After this, Darcy and Elizabeth don’t see each other for a while and then run into each other at his house when she goes on a trip with her aunt and uncle. He seemed to be more charming, because he still acknowledging her after her harsh chewing she gave him. “In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
