A Kiss Is the most raw, weak, and open you can be with someone. A face-to-face suspension of vulnerability: To taste, smell, stare and explore the softest places inside of one another. To share your kiss covers everything from view point, intimacy, nurturing, exchange of soul, and worship.
The history of kissing explains these close, trusting moments from an anthropologic point of view. But…what if you’re not a scientist or a historian? What if you’re just a person who wants to get lost in passion? The ‘big idea’ behind real romance is that though intimacy is absolutely the brick and mortar behind love. The songs, poetry and emotion that takes our breath away and makes our hearts beat faster is those moments we are too close to see anything more than the color of an eye. The turn of a lip stealing heartbeats. The stopping of time while the world and the anthropologists forget why they ever wondered how the kiss ever came to be.The moments we remember are the ones built upon truth and love, because of what we feel while locked in those intimate embraces and soul exchanges. When your brain stopped thinking and your fear and doubt had no where to go, swallowed up by another persons kiss.
If a kiss is just a reflection of your reasons for being too close to someone or something else, why do we live for those scary, heart clenching, and breath stealing moments as if they are the water we crave.
A good romance won’t leave me wanting to see or hear more of what my son calls ‘the kissing parts’. It is enough that we felt the need to be together. If you’re looking for a love story, instead of a hormone-induced longing for the tenderness and intimacy you’ve been missing, go look up your favorite clean romance. You’re far more likely to have your heart race over the love story–check out authors such as Lauren K. Denton, Melanie Jacobson, Traci McDonald and many more!
