Invaded Hearts (a poem Izuchukwu O. Udokwu)

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

The snow has left the pothole of the cloud

And has melted the tarred road of sound.

Will our tears ever awaken the barren land of shadows?

Where silence has no end and where light cannot be echoed.

Life has mingled with darkness,

Our eyes are folded in tears,

And a sudden bedlam has fallen on the roof of our heart,

To silence the promise of an unseen tart.
