Sonnet 130 and sonnet 18

Hi, I'm doing some questions about comparing and contrasting sonnet 130 and sonnet 18. Could you help me with this one question I would appreciate it. Thanks

The diction of this peom is much harsher than that of the previous poem. Why might that be and how does it affect the poem?
