Romeo and Juliet Kissing
What is kissing?
K-I-S-S-I-N-G - a physically affectionate act. How many times have you kissed someone? When did you start? Different cultures associate different meanings with kissing but universally it is a show of emotion. Along with the emotions, it has health benefits. Really. According to webmd.com;
- extra saliva washes bacteria off your teeth
- you might burn two calories a minute
- kissing and everything it engenders keeps us going strong, living long
- it quells anxiety
- The brain contains "a huge amount of receptors devoted to picking sensations from the lips,"
I bet you didn't know kissing could do all that! Kissing is second nature to us. I've written a little ditty about kissing that goes nowhere and comes from nowhere, it's just about kissing.
Chanted by children to taunt, something that may later return to haunt
As they grow to know the true meaning, is it something that they're heart is gleaning
A soft touching of two sets of lips, when emotions rise like cargo ships
Setting sail without a load, an empty ship that will surely bode
No good for sailors sailing there, no load, no cargo, not even a prayer
But what of our two lips engaged, is this an act that has been staged
To take two lovers to levels high or is it all a big fat lie?
Sitting in a tree?
What brings emotions to these two that sets their lives all askew
Is love their new and sweet emotion or is it a sign of true devotion
That each has learned this kissing game or shall it have another name
Beginning with a new found hope that helps each lover learn to cope
With all that seems to rise within a place where emptiness had been.
There are more kisses waiting there within our hearts with a great flare
That brings us out of a deep shell, a place we hide, we know so well
To start our life with new romance and give this feeling a start, a chance
So these two lips have a new sense of what we see will now commence
A romance that we both can share, perhaps a love if we so dare.
Kissing makes you happy, it can relieve stress, and it can make you healthy. Now, what better way to feel all these benefits while holding the person you love and KISSING them! Best thing? Its free! So, start your engines and start kissing!
