Heartless draught

Is this something metaphorically said? Please explain or rephrase. I'm not sure I understand the meaning of "draught" here.

Some guy is in love with a cold-hearted girl, but finally he gives up having realized that was a lost cause.

"She blew past me like a gust of cold wind, but my yearning heart still ran after the heartless draught."

    Yes, it is a metaphor. The writer refers to the girl as a "draught" (a movement of air) after comparing her passage to a gust of cold wind.

    He's extending the metaphor he used earlier, when likened her to "a gust of cold wind".

    This is from the Word Reference dictionary:

    6 draft, draught

    a current of air (usually coming into a room or vehicle)

    EDIT: Snap, Matching Mole. :)
