A kiss, when all is said, what is it?
A rosy dot placed on the “i” in loving;
‘Tis a secret told to the mouth instead of to the ear.
This is what a kiss for Edmond Rostand, and I believe it too. Others define kiss by the very best hyperbole they have, and
the craziest that I heard is that kiss made him to fly with angels. In short, kiss is the sweetest among the stuffs of love. And in fact it is like a cure. I remembered my brother who takes a box of cigarettes a day, but after his girlfriend’s first kiss, he doesn’t buy even a single stick anymore. “Thanks for that kiss”, mom whispered to herself.
Indeed, kiss can be a cure by emotional and physical sense. Bryant Stamford, PhD, professor and director of the health promotion center at the University of Louisville said that, “During a really, really passionate kiss, you might burn two calories a minute — double your metabolic rate.” (This compares to 11.2 calories per minute you burn jogging on a treadmill.) Joy Davidson, PhD, psychologist and clinical sexologist in Seattle, and former columnist for an online column called “Underwire.” stated that kiss “stops the buzz in your mind, it quells anxiety, and it heightens the experience of being present in the moment. It actually produces a lot of the physiological changes that meditation produces.” All in all, kissing and everything it engenders keeps us going strong, living long, as Stamford says. (Source)
In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him…
‘Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:…’
Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths…
Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death. (Proverbs 7:9-13, 25,27)
Man should flee from tasting this kind of kiss. The kiss of a harlot or an unknown woman is the most dangerous of all kisses that anyone can have. God said, by their kiss you are likened to a lamb going to slaughter. Why? Because from their kiss, scientifically, a man can have herpes, strep throat, AIDS, hepatitis, cytomegalo virus, syphillus, mononucleosis, etc. You can have various illness by kissing an UNKNOWN WOMAN. Remember, not just from a harlot, but from an UNKNOWN WOMAN.
“For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.” (Proverbs 23:27)
So let kiss become a blessing in one’s love life rather than curse. A kiss can be the best one in the world if it is for the one whom you completely knew and loved, and not with those others that share her/his lips with another.
