The grip of Love...

I came across this picture the other day on Tumblr. It is from the movie Love & Basketball. The way he is embracing her, the placement of his hands, and the expression on his face is everything. It's almost as if he is holding her up. The gentle way his fingers are spread says that he wants her to feel the wholeness of his embrace, and at the same time he is trying not to let an inch of her being slip through his fingers. To me, this photo represents not only love, but the genuine need and want of another individual. I hope everyone is embraced this way at least once in their lifetime.
