Romantic Love As Transference Neurosis

They tell us

that our love

is transference neurosis.


Transference Neurosis.

The core of neurosis.

That our battle

as it develops




That our love

and the battle that ensues

is resistance

to letting go

of the pleasures of infantile

mental experience.

Their goal

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.
