Rhyming and Lyrics – Silent Wishes

Silent Wishes by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

This monotony of me on me
is not enough to set me free

My mind is still so fucking frantic,
and I’m still so very heartsick

Why can’t I just not be sober
‘til this nauseous feeling’s over?

Why can’t I just let you be,
and distract all this lust in me?

I guess it’s just the way I’m built,
I’m not quite right, my axis tilts

I feed off my imagination
Just to get a new sensation

Let my thoughts flail & my mind race
Let my skin flush, quickened pulse pace

Hide from these truths all the while
in my crush filled sweet denial

Most days, though, I want this over
Thinkin’ ‘bout that four leaf clover

Pledge my head to clearer thinking
just to keep my heart from sinking

Give my hands to greater service,
and faintly wish that I deserve him

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
