The most honest and heartbreaking reason to leave your front door unlocked I've ever heard.

Neil Hilborn, like many poets, is a troubled soul. His affliction? Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

The man has struggled with severe OCD for years. Now he's found a powerful way to transform his disorder into a declaration of love.

Hilborn's stirring, two-minute poem left an audience in awe as he battled physical tics and nervous twitches to describe how his OCD affected his relationship, and vice-versa.

If you want to see more of his amazing work, you could Like him on Facebook.
