Quote by Patrick Swayze
What's powerful about a love scene is not seeing the act. It's seeing the passion, the need, the desire, the caring, the fear.
This quote highlights that the power of a love scene lies not in the depiction of the physical act itself, but rather in the emotional intensity and vulnerability portrayed. It emphasizes the importance of capturing the underlying feelings of passion, longing, caring, and even fear that drive the characters involved. By focusing on these emotions rather than explicit actions, the quote suggests that genuine connection and the portrayal of human desires are what make love scenes truly impactful and resonant.
We got off at the next exit, quietly, and, switching drivers, we walked in front of the car. We met and I held him, my hands balled into tight fists around his shoulders, and he wrapped his short arms around me and squeezed tight, so that I felt the heaves of his chest as we realized over and over again that we were still alive. I realized it in waves and we held on to each other crying and I thought, 'God we must look so lame,' but it doesn't matter when you have just now realized, all the time later, that you are still alive.
