The 9 of 10 given words:
kiss death begging walk sun
ever nothing garden remains
The kiss of death
Begging for an answer
from not just a walk in the sun
What was it
Was there ever one?
Nothing less than in
the garden of Gethsemane
That was where it happened
The night before His crucifixion
From Judas' kiss that betrayed Him
Now it remained incessantly to describe
Something that is ultimately ruinous, destructive, or fatal:
A relationship or action that makes failure or ruin inevitable
An act or relationship that has fatal or disastrous consequences
It covered the whole gamut of what could go wrong
Even divorce was once described as a
political kiss of death" by Ellen Goodman.
Unless after a kiss of death
one literally got devoured by a
Black Widow as a coup de grace
it could dance on every one's lips!
Devouring one so dear was game enough
Food for thought!
Note: From Judas' kiss that betrayed Jesus
in the garden of Gethsemane (Mark 14:44-45)
