Anais Nin: Desirous

As I have often said, Anais Nin should never be censored, particularly with respect to her diary entries.  The following is from Anais Nin’s “Fire: the Unexpurgated Diary of Anais Nin, 1934 to 1937” from her lifelong diary, “A Journal of Love.”  Here she describes a scene from her love affair with Gonzalo…

All night, all night we dreamed.  He slept a moment.  Awoke desirous, slipping into me and out, swiftly, pushed away his desire, our fever mounting, words like caresses, caresses like words, like drugs.  His desire again, renunciation, fever, the dream, ecstasy.
