I’m Not Gonna Ever by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Sometimes it’s hate that swallows me whole
It permeates skin and wraps around bones
and right now it seems like it’s one of those times
Putrid thick anger weaves through my mind
Leering at faces behind my red eyes
Blinded by nightmares I breathe into life

Dance with my devils and laugh I’m insane
but I’m not gonna let you do this again

Walk right on over, you walk right on me
I just can’t see why you won’t let me be
I ain’t got nothing, most nothing don’t phase me
So why do you gotta be pushy and change me?
This is my life, and I like how I live it
My heart has run dry, there’s no blood left to give it

Dance with my devils and laugh I’m insane
but I’m not gonna let you change me again

Now I’ll sink back, back into my brain
‘cause if I don’t I might go insane
Hide my soul deep where you won’t be finding
My scissors cut veins and strings that are binding
and not long you’ll see that you just don’t need me
I guess this depression’s a cage, but I’m free

Dance with my devils and laugh I’m insane
but I’m not gonna ever love you again

Dance with my devils and laugh I’m insane
but I’m not gonna ever love me again

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.
