Like the taste of wine, strawberries and honey; these are some of the most common descriptions of a lover’s kisses.
“Honey and milk are under thy tongue” Says the Song of Songs. “But it is the Spirit within a Kiss that makes us all LOVESTRUCK” states Miss Kristin
The feeling of a kiss can be described in a multitude of ways:
“At what else does that touching of lips aim but at a junction of souls?” states Favorinus of Arles.
The Persian poet Ha-fez, writes that he fears he will “char her delicate lips” when he writes of kissing his beloved.
“This music can and will breathe life into you, just as a kiss from your lover would do.” Miss Kristin
Perhaps one of the most potent notions of kissing revolves around the belief in kissing to create life force and vitality. The Renaissance saw a rapid rise in the view of kissing as an exchange of souls, and as an offering of the self to the other person. Allusions to kissing in poetry include an eternal kiss, a swoon that carries the couple almost to death, and most importantly, the diffusion of one soul into the body of the other. The Romans believed that kissing a dying lover would keep the spirit in the body longer.
