Rhyming and Lyrics – A Beautiful Mess Like Me

A Beautiful Mess Like Me by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

You are a beautiful mess just like me
I see in your arms my safe place to be free
but we are two fools that can’t get it together
writhing in silence through furious weather

Damaged and broken with rot in our cores
How could we expect to be loved any more
when most of our feelings come off of cold labels
and real true romance only happens in fables

Barely just found my heart’s torn apart pieces
Scared of your mind and the lust it unleashes
Blindingly juxtaposed and we’re in pieces
Do I just wanna fuck or do I really need this?

A peek in your heart made my soul want to dance
so a look in your eyes is a glance I can’t chance
Locking our soul windows might bring us near
but this soul recognition’s now something I fear

The cold in the dark sent me runnin’ away
but it wasn’t the real reason I didn’t stay
Scared that you’ll love me but scared you’ll reject me
Fearing I’ll ruin you, afraid you’ll infect me

Barely just met you and my mind’s in pieces
Torn between running and riding your jesus
Blindingly jaded we picked up our pieces
We’re comfortably numb, let carnality feed us

You are a beautiful mess just like me
I see in your eyes my safe place to be free
but we’re still two fools that can’t get it together
and lost in our silence we’ll miss our forever

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.
