This is what Wikipedia has to say about kisses, and it’s surprisingly beautiful
The kiss is an important expression of love and erotic emotions. In Kristoffer Nyrop’s book, The Kiss and its History, Nyrop describes the kiss of love as an “exultant message of the longing of love, love eternally young, the burning prayer of hot desire, which is born on the lovers’ lips, and ‘rises,’ as Charles Fuster has said, ‘up to the blue sky from the green plains,’ like a tender, trembling thank-offering.” He adds, that the love kiss, “rich in promise, bestows an intoxicating feeling of infinite happiness, courage, and youth, and therefore surpasses all other earthly joys in sublimity.”[7]:30 He also compares it to one’s achievements in life, “Thus even the highest work of art, yet, the loftiest reputation, is nothing in comparison with the passionate kiss of a woman one loves.”[7]:31
The power of a kiss is not minimized when he writes that “we all yearn for kisses and we all seek them; it is idle to struggle against this passion. No one can evade the omnipotence of the kiss …” Kissing, he implies, can lead one to maturity: “It is through kisses that a knowledge of life and happiness first comes to us. Runeberg says that the angels rejoice over the first kiss exchanged by lovers,” and can keep one feeling young: “It carries life with it; it even bestows the gift of eternal youth.” The importance of the lover’s kiss can also be significant, he notes: “In the case of lovers a kiss is everything; that is the reason why a man stakes his all for a kiss,” and “man craves for it as his noblest reward.”[7]:37
As a result, kissing as an expression of love is contained in much of literature, old and new. Nyrop gives a vivid example in the classic love story of Daphnis and Chloe. As a reward “Chloe has bestowed a kiss on Daphnis—an innocent young-maid’s kiss, but it has on him the effect of an electrical shock”:[7]:47

Ye gods, what are my feelings. Her lips are softer than the rose’s leaf, her mouth is sweet as honey, and her kiss inflicts on me more pain than a bee’s sting. I have often kissed my kids, I have often kissed my lambs, but never have I known aught like this. My pulse is beating fast, my heart throbs, it is as if I were about to suffocate, yet, nevertheless, I want to have another kiss. Strange, never-suspected pain! Has Chloe, I wonder, drunk some poisonous draught ere she kissed me? How comes it that she herself has not died of it?

Romantic kissing “requires more than simple proximity,” notes Cane. It also needs “some degree of intimacy or privacy, … which is why you’ll see lovers stepping to the side of a busy street or sidewalk.”[3] Psychologist Wilhelm Reich ”lashed out at society” for not giving young lovers enough privacy and making it difficult to be alone.[3] However, Cane describes how many lovers manage to attain romantic privacy despite being in a public setting, as they “lock their minds together” and thereby create an invisible sense of “psychological privacy.” He adds, “In this way they can kiss in public even in a crowded plaza and keep it romantic.”[3]:10 Nonetheless, when Cane asked people to describe the most romantic places they ever kissed, “their answers almost always referred to this ends-of-the-earth isolation, … they mentioned an apple orchard, a beach, out in a field looking at the stars, or at a pond in a secluded area …”[3]:10

somewhere beyond the sea

Life just seems to be going by in one jumbled whirl. It goes by so fast sometimes, I’m sure I must be forgetting something.  Life is a blur of worry and movement.  some days I feel aimless,  like couldn’t create and that am I powerless to control where I am going. Some days. They say success is being the very best that you think you can be.  Trying to create something that will last is a risky gambit, and I can feel time even now slipping through my young fingers. I realize that everything that I have now is fleeting.  Maybe all life is is fighting to keep the things you have and failing. Beauty, love.. memory is only a real companion when it’s written down. Yet it gets so difficult to write this stuff. I have so many reservations. I can’t create something timeless, I can only be the author of myself and I want to be sculpted into greatness.
