The Might of Just One Kiss

Artword by Joseph Lorusso


"Ancient lovers believed a kiss would literally unite their souls, because the spirit was said to be carried in one's breath."  ~Eve Glicksman


It is not a meager tug this pull that love has upon a woman's soul....
drawing her lips to another's like a golden ember and charring coals....
it holds an utter splendor that is tender yet strong like cobalt steel....
capturing the strength of resistance not to reach out and want to feel....
it's ache lingers in growth that multiplies like big numbers within the heart...
for the magnetic field of a deep kiss is a force no mortal might can pull apart.
