Blackout Poetry - Incompatibility

I entered a swap at swap-bot involving blackout poetry.  I chose Pride and Prejudice page 162 for my poem.This is one of the poems I sent to my partner, titled Incompatibility.

Incompatibility 
By Candace Shultz

Her deeply-rooted dislike of man
Did not vary for an instant.

When he should have hope
He had doubt and anxiety.

Colour rose into her cheeks,
And she said,
If I could feel, but I cannot.
I am sorry.

His eyes fixed on her face,
His complexion pale with anger,
The disturbance of his mind visible.
