Emotional poetry performance about OCD and relationships

We’ve heard a few love poems in our day, but “OCD” by Neil Hillborn isn’t exactly the typical love poem. This video shows Hillborn performing his piece at the Individual Finals of this year’s Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam, and his performance is no less than moving.

The poem gives a heart-wrenching description of the difficulties of OCD in relationships. Hillborn’s poem even reached the top of Reddit a few days ago, and the poet himself even joined in on the conversation. Prepare yourself for all the feels.
