It's not often that I'm at a loss for words, but this is one of them. This love poem from a man with OCD is stunning in its raw simplicity and emotion.

Neil Hilborn's performance in the Individual Finals of this year's Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam has taken the internet by storm, but on his tumblr blog, he says "I have been doing this poem for almost three years, and this is the first time anyone has taken a good video of it." I'm glad they did. I'm glad they did.
