An OCD love poem

I put gloves on before I put gloves on, so I don’t get my gloves dirty.

I was riveted the whole way through, but was totally not expecting the dam to burst there at the end. Wow.

At the risk of producing and echo...

Wow.

Not only does this poem get to the heart of love, it also gives a glimpse into the mind/world of a person with OCD.

Powerful on both accounts.

Thank you, Tabatha, for sharing this powerful work and amazing delivery - as mentioned in other comment, I'm sharing with my psychiatrist hubby.

Wow, this was very moving. The way he said he left the door unlocked. Heart-wrenching.
