Gone With The Wind (a poem by Justice Gift Ogochukwu)

Student Pulse brings you the #PulseStudentPoetry Prize where 8 lines of poetry could win you a sleek Lenovo ThinkPad...

My heart burned

with sweet flames of your passion.

The symphony of my heartbeats

was for us to waltz eternally.

But in the heat of our passion,

jealous wind came along.

And like it steals flame from a candle,

so it stole you from me.
