The Dream Breakers


The Dream Breakers by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

We are the dream makers fighting the dream breakers
Hordes of depressed silent masses
They seek out the others destroying their brothers
Content to be lowly and fascist

We’re fighting good people and sometimes our equals
We’ll stand up to those who would harm us
We’ll trust not a soul, nihilism’s our goal
and we’ll fend off all those that would charm us

We’ll safe guard our heart right from the start
and pretend what they say doesn’t matter
We’ll hide them away, let our feelings decay
‘til our minds are as mad as a hatter

We’ll sit in the dark all alone with no spark
‘cause they might steal our light if we flash it
and then we’ll blend in ‘cause it isn’t a sin
to come out in the world if we match them

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.
