I'm not really sure where to go with this one, I'm gonna type whatever comes to mind. No plan, just winging it. I Googled and found plenty of people have blogged on this topic before. I didn't want to copy what I read. (So, this turned out to be about my personal experiences with kissing. This is your warning, you can turn back now).
Kiss - [kis] (used with object) to touch or press with the lips slightly pursed, and then often to part them and to emit a smacking sound, in an expression of affection, love, greeting, reverence. (dictionary.com)
-Did you ever sneak a peek while kissing someone to find them staring at you wide-eyed? Ack! What is that all about? Then you find out they always do that - Creepy!
"I lean in and kiss her lightly on her lips, pulling her in just a little closer. I feel her hands trembling as she puts her arms around me and kisses me deeper and more passionately." -The Legacy of Kilkenny, by Devyn Dawson.
"His lips were soft, softer than I ever imagined a boy's lips would be, but firm underneath where they pressed against his teeth. His warm breath tasted like cinnamon gum. It filled my mouth. I melted toward him, not meaning to, giving in to something amazing and open and pure. I kissed him back. For that brief slice of forever, I forgot everything but the joy of it." -Family Magic, by Patti Larsen
"He kissed her so gently she barely felt it. Her toes curled in her shoes. He pulled away, a question in his eyes. When he saw she was smiling, he kissed her again a little deeper, moving his lips steadily against hers. Her mouth trembled under his, not entirely sure of what she was doing, but knowing it felt good enough to keep going." -Of Light and Darkness, by Shayne Leighton.
"His fingers tightened in my hair as I pressed my lips to his. When our mouths opened together, it was almost like imprinting all over again. I felt a tingling burn start at my lips and move outwards down my neck, a cold in my veins and a hot on my skin. My body zinged with a jolt of tremors and shocks. A heavy fog seemed to blanket the room, like morphine. I was calm, almost too calm, but also enraptured with him and his lips." -Significance, by Shelly Crane.
