Poetry. "When you're dumb enough for long enough, you're gonna meet someone too smart to love you, and they're gonna love you anyway, and it's gonna go so poorly," Neil Hilborn writes in his debut full-length collection, OUR NUMBERED DAYS. In 2013, Hilborn's poem "OCD" went viral, and has amassed over 11 million views to date. While this collection ruminates on love, heartbreak, and mental illness, these poems are anything but saccharine. Hilborn uses the same humor and self-deprecation that propelled "OCD" to success in order to make his unmatched vulnerability all the more powerful. Ultimately, Hilborn is a poet of the people: his work is accessible, honest, and entertaining a revitalizing entry in contemporary poetry."

An amazing, eye-opening poetry collection. Some of the images are quite confrontational. It's a great read and its also very enjoyable to follow Niel's u tube clips where he rEads some of the poems aloud.
loved this book for all Neils passion, his hurts and his pain, his love and his happiness - its all there, so raw for everyone to read - and you can't deny how lovely and wonderful and amazing that is.
