Secret kisses, summoned kisses, the interlude kiss, the invisible kiss, the last kiss, kiss kiss bang bang, the first kiss, the matrimonial kiss, the evolution of a kiss, the courageous kiss, the loss for words kiss, the kiss we never give, the revolutionary kiss, the late night sessions kiss: “The world is born when two people kiss.” -Octavio Paz.

There comes a point in life where kissing is no longer an imitation of a movie scene, or even a demonstration of simple desire. Kisses often come with a past, and sometimes a future, and yet in the same moment they are a refuge from all of those things.

Being saved by a kiss isn’t just for fables and fairy tales alike, occasionally in that very instant that kiss and those words couldn’t be truer. -tM
