Forlorn Lady

At last, long last
I saw him leave
Leave for good
And a stern stare
That followed him
Saw him turn not
Towards me 
Not once
I swear!
For if truth be told
He turned not at all!
But hurried forth briskly
To a point north of here
To his dear mademoiselle!
My tears will not cease
To irrigate my bosom
My stare will not decrease
For in the midst of all this
I dare not my strength
Discountenance, dare I?

    I replied to your reply in "The Plains', if you could please check out! Won"t you try the Questionku? Invented by my friend Richard Lamoureux, here in the Soup, rules are; 3 lines; 4-5-6 feet; ending with a question. Example: (^_^) (I'm quoting you, with your permission): If truth be told (4 feet) / I dare not my strength (5 feet) / Discountenance, dare I? (6 feet)
