Love, heartbreak, happiness, sadness, hopes, dreams & ideas all transmuted to a common medium - the written word.

I love getting questions, submissions and requests so don't hesitate!

Are we ever honest with ourselves?

—Six word story || Colleen Courtney Anderson ||

The cycle is always the same.


1. I love you.
2. I shouldn’t love you.
3. I can’t love you.
4. Guilt.
5. I repress loving you.
6. I pretend that I am happy.
7. Feelings begin to resurface.
8. I remember. Oh God…
Endlessly, repeat steps one through eight.


I have tried to set my emotions for you aside for the greater good. I have tried to block out thoughts of you. I have tried to live my life without you.

I can’t do it anymore.

I just can’t.

Went to a wedding today and enjoyed some beautiful autumn weather!

The problem with always belonging to someone else is that you never truly belong to yourself. Your confidence becomes bound to their validation. You learn to search for your worth in their words, in their eyes.


Let me tell you this, talk is cheap and sight can mislead.


You need to learn to love yourself.


Learn to love your crazy hair, bright eyes and crooked fingers. Embrace your taste in movies, music and books. Indulge in your goofy sense of humor and laugh without feeling insecure. Revel in your need to explore, observe and discover. Figure out what you are passionate about and pursue it.


You are your only constant.


The sooner you learn to love yourself, the sooner you’ll know what true love feels like.

Why am I enough to catch your eye but not enough to catch your heart?

Why am I enough to like but not enough to love?

Why am I enough to be sexy but not enough to be beautiful?

Why am I enough to pique your interest but not enough to hold your attention?

Why am I enough to make you come but not enough to make you stay?


Why am I enough to be “her” but not enough to be “Her”?


You’ve broken my heart so many times. I deserve an answer. Please, tell me.

Why am I not enough?

I wish I had nightmares like normal people. My nightmares never involve murder, disaster, falling, drowning, etc. They are almost always peaceful… Until I wake up.

ANY REQUESTS?

Anyone have a particular topic that they’d like me to write about? I’m wanting to improve myself by writing about subjects that I may commonly overlook or simply haven’t experienced. So, if you’ve been struggling to put an emotion or experience into words, let me know and I will try to provide a voice.

If you’re interested, you can submit a request publicly or anonymously through the “Ask” section of my page.

Can’t wait to see what we come up with!

I laugh in the spring
and grin in the summer but
I live for the fall.

And in the winter
My bones start to ache again
Begging for the spring.
