The Evolution of Kissing

The Evolution of Kissing

The very first kiss
Placed on the soft lips
Is a mom’s privilege
The second
Placed on the forehead
Is pops...?
Then other siblings
Will have to wait
After a few
Grannies have blessed

Then the caress
Gradually moves
On to later years

When teens grow up
The meaning of a kiss
Totally changes
As the occasion
The location
The where and when
The how and why
An intense
Sense signifies.

Then comes the intensity,
The duration,
The laxity,
The deep penetration,
A Frenchy may be...
The holding of hands
Clasped perhaps
Wet in text,
The posture,
The time,
The occasion,
The first date
The initial lover’s pecking kiss
The pre nuptial one
Each kiss has an adaptation
One needs the comprehension
Of evaluation
Of a kiss
Whenever it’s made in public
Or in the privacy
Behind veiled curtains
Between two colliding souls
Slightly still uncertain

I do hope we have covered
All kinds of visual kisses
As also we ought to remember
The beautiful misses,
For kisses aren’t just kisses
They reveal a great deal of mystery
Between two loving human beings
Out to commit
A newer kissing

With The Chief architect
Behind this work
Being friend Raj

I am a poetic entertainer
that's all I know about poetry


author comment

"I would love to kiss you.
'The price of kissing is your life.
'Now my loving is running toward my life shouting,
What a bargain, let's buy it."
