Analysis of "A Complaint" by William Wordsworth - ... Many of us do not realize there is a void or need in our hearts, until suddenly, the love that fills us is gone. In this line, “And flow it did; not taking heed/ of its own bounty, or my need” (5-6), Wordsworth seems to resent that a void has been left with no way for it to be filled. It is as if he is asking, why did I love so much, just to have it taken away. The individual whom the poem is written about does not seem to realize the power or effect of their love; which makes you wonder if they felt as strongly as the poet, or if they knew how strongly the poet felt for them....   [tags: Poetry, Romance, Love] 854 words
