Romantic Love As Transference Neurosis
They tell us
that our love
is transference neurosis.
The core of neurosis.
That our battle
as it develops
That our love
and the battle that ensues
to letting go
of the pleasures of infantile
is to cure us.
This is one of a series of audio poems I wrote on love and relationship in May of 1998. Each poem makes reference to a psychological, psychoanalytic, existential or spiritual theory. This particular poem points to Freud's theory of transference resistance. Other poems in the series touch on "Empathy", "Romantic Love", "Ego Strength", "I-Thou", and "Support Groups"
These poems appear in the published hardcover and electronic editions of "Poems from InnerRESOURCES 8 Ideas". You can find them at Authors Den, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

|The title struck me not so much as a poem, but as a title in a college course. I have a Mac and Quicktime, so I tried--I said tried--to download. Alas, I will not have the benefit of your lecture on Love's Resistance.|
