Hi, I'm Livi, I play the flute and I have just enough blind hope to want to be a writer someday.

Tempest

PROMPT: WILD

Stand against it
Hands shaking, cheeks numbing,
Feel it against your chest,
Your eyes,
Your lips,
Your toes,
Let it seep through,
Like suggestions in the wind
Or whispers in the playground
And let it fall over you
Washing you,
Rinsing,
Making anew,
And then turn, and prove,
That it will not defeat you.

He Was a Mountain

PROMPT: The Art of Specificity

The man stood alone, like a mountain. He gazed out with hard eyes, narrowed in concentration. His feet - in carefully polished Oxfords that looked as new as the day he'd bought them, were but centimetres away from the floor to ceiling window. He was expressionless, or perhaps just had an expression so unique no one could pin him down. He was powerful.

The man stood alone. He gazed out of the window, at the city skyline, with eyes (heavy-lidded,...

PROMPT: Why I Write

I write to record.
Imagine the world as a sheet of crisp, unbroken snow. Each story is like a footprint, breaking the snow, planting a message that says "I was here". Humanity's mark is the way we write. We each have maybe one hundred years or so maximum on this planet, where we can choose to do as we please and live our life the way we want to. Every scholar, every historian, every poet chose to step into the...

One Hundred Years of Culture

PROMPT: Interview Competition 2017

An interview with my grandmother.

How was life when you were in school? Was it different to how it is for me?

Obviously, it was more religious. We attended mass much more often than I think you do. I know you do still have sisters teaching you, but only one or two. We onlyhad the nuns, and they were horrible! They'd pull you up for anything. It was a different era indeed. We'd no internet as well, just the...

When the Sky Closes Tomorrow

PROMPT: Omniscient Lens

Harry Ellis watched the Dove dancing on the boat with narrowed eyes and a straight mouth.
The Dove was a strange thing. A fisherman's boy, all long and thin, and wearing baggy shirts that fluttered in the wind and stuck to his chest when wet, lining every one of his ribs, he stood like a bastion in such hard times as his people were in. Few knew his name, but more knew that it wasn't important to him, and the...

I Am Not Important

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2017

Alone
I tremble on the quayside,
And stare out at the sea,
And think,
"I am here
I exist."

But,
As the wind whips against my cheeks,
Tremendously soft
Like a quiet gasp
In a silent church,
The waves, in their cruel tuition,
Remind me
That it doesn't really matter.

They will not stop
For man,
Nor for me.

Because only an idiot thinks,
In their hour of glory,
That the next idiot will remember them.

The World Started With Your Fingertips

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2017

He jumps out of the car first, of course, and you don't think before moving instinctively to follow him. You've driven a long way, but you'll have to drive a lot longer to truly escape.
"We could run forever," he mutters, and it sticks with unnerving agreement in your chest. You're lying so close to him that you can feel the blood flowing through his veins, and you know this time he means it.
"We could."
You'll be safe someday,...
