Broken Rosy Lenses


Broken Rosy Lenses by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

I was what you saw in her
I was in her eyes
That fleshy bag of meat
was just a me disguise

I was Hunter Thompson
I was Steadman too
I was everything you wanted
packaged wrong for you

I was good intentions
Hers the road to hell
but you skipped along right down her path
until you tripped and fell

I was there to pick you up
There to dust you off
but the second you felt better
a pirate stole your heart

I was there to watch you fall
cracked apart again
I was there to watch you
through my shattered rosy lens

I’m still here to pick you up
Here to dust you off
but I’ve built a wall around my heart
with double bolted locks

I’m still everything you want
packaged wrong for you
but now my rosy lens is capped
She’s me and I am you

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.
