Amazing: Neil Hilborn’s Poem “OCD”

Poet Neil Hilborn who lives with a slightly severe case of Obsessive Compulsion Disorder (OCD) performed during the Individual Finals of this year’s Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam with a piece called “OCD”. The poem reveals an intimate encounter Hilborn had with a female counterpart and how his OCD was a factor in the couple’s break-up, however the love he possessed for the girl helped him overcome his struggles with the disorder. What makes the performance striking is that you can see Hilborn nervously dealing with his OCD as he intensely recites his lines. Amazing…
