My spirit is one with yours; since
burning times and zealot’s reign.
We have walked, talked, made love,
made war lived and died together.
I have burned at the stake with you,
and with rising smoke and ashes, our
souls flew together into the night sky.
Now, finally being reunited with you
after what has seemed an eternity,
I find myself back there once again,
thrown onto the fiery flaming pyre,
my soul slowly burned to oblivion.
You haven’t the strength to fight
these overly pious tormentors, or
put out the flames about me; so
once again, I burn, my essence rises,
a wisp of love bequeathed … I burn.

The theme of this anthology, isn’t in any way compiled to shock our readers or to embolden our writer’s hedonistic desires beyond the realms of the actual physical truth, but to quite simply tell us factually the particulars good or bad, hilarious or sad about themselves, about dating in our currently vastly changing world—about their sexual preferences experiences their carnal desires needs and to divulge them bravely, unblushingly, unashamedly to share them with us; what it is to date someone today or to fall-in-love or to never find love at all. Love is not a fantasy, but it can be magical. Naughty Nuts & Bolts takes a good look at these bodily functions through heart, mind and body and physically unparalleled expectations.
