I went through a phase:
one with iron and flames.

For every time I was thrown into the flames,
I came out darkened with colours of red.

For every time I was flung into the flames,
every burn exposed a layer of my skin.

For every time I was cast into the flames,
I felt my weaknesses running towards the surface
like impurities, they slowly but surely burned out.

And when I was out of the furnace, 
I was hit severely, constantly, causing me to break-

free from the things I was once conformed to,
allowing me to adapt to something new.

I went through a phase when we left us.

I sunk into the flames and every time I did,

I found myself beneath the hammer’s clang —

multiple times.

But before I knew it, I had turned into something new

and became complete

without you.

About Complete: Spoken Word Poetry

This poem came from a personal place.

A few hours ago, I was thinking about how I actually recovered from heartbreak. If anyone had told me last year that I would get out of this, I would never have believed them. And as I was pondering on just how far I have come, the words of this poem came to life.

Complete is seen from the perspective of a Blacksmith. I was the iron that was cast into the flames. The ‘colours of red’ represent my pain, frustration, and anger.

This period made me realize how weak and vulnerable I was. I kept thinking I couldn’t move on without him. Each time, I went through the process of healing, I would cry and have sleepless nights but gradually, I began to accept the change.

Not long after, I decided to turn my pain into a beautiful work of art. What I did was to invest in myself. I not only adapted to the new ( the fact that what we were had now become mere memories), I discovered a new version of me. I erupted like a beautiful firework and I became complete.

To anyone currently going through this phase, I want you to know that you’ll be fine eventually. It’s a process. Endure the process and become a better version of yourself. You’ll be amazed you did.

This definitely hits home. And hard. But I like the positive outcome that you show. Though we burn, though we break, we come back strong. We come back more complete than ever.

Beautiful. I just love the way you use words to express deep emotions. The message you conveyed in this piece hit me straight in the heart. I can relate it to a past relationship. Too much pain, too much hardship, but after the relationship ended, I found out that I am not a “worthless” person. I regained my confidence and self worth after I’ve been “through hell and back.”

The expression that everything happens for a purpose is so apt during times of heartbreak. We feel so many emotions, but like a phoenix we rise from the ashes!
