The Kiss...who can resist...

We all know THE KISS when we see it.
The KISS brings us joy, pain, contentment, anger, fear, tears …. vulnerability and emotions we never knew we had.
It is associated with LOVE but it doesn’t have to be, as we all kiss for different reasons, some of which are shown here.

The Kiss of Passion

The Kiss of Innocence

The Kiss of Betrayal

The Kiss of Death

The Kiss of An Angel

The Kiss or Rear Ender

The Kiss Off

The Candy Kisses

The Princely Kiss

The Friendship Kiss

The Farewell Kiss

The Butterfly or Laughing Eskimo Kiss

The Well Known Beloved Kiss

The Final Kiss

Next to eating, THE KISS is the most important thing in all our lives.
As beings with human emotion, THE KISS can expose truths and lies better than any court of law.
It connects and separates better than telephones and walls and it unites better than flowers, chocolates or ice cream.
Without it…. we’d be very lonely people indeed.

I loved this post. It was very thought provoking. What inspired this post. Gosh, you ended it with the kiss of death ...well, the final kiss. Great post!

Yes the final kiss is the most heartbreaking one because you will never see this beloved again nor kiss his/her lips. It makes me cry just thinking about it. lol

This is a long list of kisses. And there are other kisses. Like man kissing each other, like the French, the Russians and Belgians do. French Presidents kiss a man when they have deocrated him. All the Russian leaders do (did) it. And I always kissed my male inlaws from my first marriage. But I also kissed my female inlaws. And that was more fun.

This was a wonderful post, I have to disagree with you on the last one, I do believe most of us will be reunited again in Heaven so the Final Kiss may be here on Earth but then there is the Welcome Home Kiss when we are reunited.

Thanks Guys.
Peter, the men kissing would, I assume, be under friendship, but of course this was just a sample of why people kiss and how close it brings all kind of people together.
I also left out children for the same reason. They're under angels because this is what children are to me. :)

O.F. I agree. We will all see each other again So it is an earthly farewell.
