Anticipation by Angela Bertoli


I sit waiting at the table,

Where you said we should meet.

My heart is doing double time,

And sometimes skips a beat.


My head is full of dreams,

Of what will come of this.

But silently I’m drifting off,

Into that dark abyss.


The one that got away,

The love that didn’t last,

I watched as my evermore,

Strolled right into my past.


Shake those ugly thoughts off,

Don’t give it so much time.

This is how the love game’s played,

Just one more hill to climb.

Naughty nuts and olts

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.
