LmnO Through Grief

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 3.43.25 PM I probably shouldn’t tell y’all this, but.. the “boyfriend” referenced in this article is me. Carrie Melvin and I never liked those BF/GF types of titles ’cause the words are so limiting and incapable of capturing the true nature of our link. The link, I’ve learned is much greater than the physical realm, as I still feel it although she’s been cremated and all the way gone. If you didn’t already know this about me, you probably wouldn’t by the way I carry myself. I still crack jokes. I still say inappropriate shit. I still remain true to my outspoken nature. I often feel like inhibiting myself before I cut loose and am reminded that I’m still that dude she fell in love with. Apparently there is a playbook for grief I have not been following by continuing to reach for my goals and aspirations in comedy and production as though she was still here. I thought about it. Hearing her voice echo “Don’t be sad. I don’t want to see you cry” from a previous unrelated conversation. I used to joke to her and say “A man is allowed to cry 2 times a year and still be masculine.” She told me that was some of the dumbest shit she’s ever heard. “Well the unused tears rollover,” I’d reply. She’d shake her head as if to say “You stupid.” I used ALL my rollover tears and am in overage right now- shit months ago.
Before Ezeoma “Eze” Obiaha was arrested for creeping up on us that night and shooting her in the face with a shotgun (The fuckin face, man), reading the comments section of the news articles was the worst. Motherfuckers knew in their hearts I was in on the murder on some crooked shit. Me choosing to work through the grief and continue to perform standup comedy and podcasting was a direct offense to others following the story, not knowing that I was cracking jokes at an open mic when we first locked eyes. That look she gave me was more than a “Lamb Choppin” ass lurky bomchickawahwah look. This woman was amazed and inspired in a manner I’ve never seen. Being with her, my goal was to do all I could to keep that look of inspiration and amazement on her face and in her heart. They couldn’t know that shit because it would put me and our relationship in the media light, when what was really important at the time was finding this weak mothafucka. It wasn’t about how she inspired me to not only dig deep and achieve many of my dreams and goals, but also to inspire, motivate and empower her to achieve hers.
