Rhyming and Lyrics – The Early Bird

The Early Bird by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

I’m perpetually looking
For someone in life
Who won’t think it’s too early for me

I’m constantly searching
For someone who thinks
It’s ok for me to be me

Maybe not romance
Even just friendship
From someone that sees inside me

One that won’t use me
Or be way too boozy
Or flee when it’s time to help me

I know I’m real weird
And sometimes I’m feared
But it’s just my wild heart that runs free

Just give me a minute
To calm all these nerve tics
And show you the greatness in me

I swear I am worth it
I’m all that you heard and
A little bit more underneath

But time keeps on spinnin’
And still I’m not winnin’
That early bird worm that I seek

My last hope is gone now
Move on I will somehow
So used to my lonely I’ll be

And maybe stop lookin’
For chemistry cookin’
When matches light fires just as easy

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.
