I’m A Real Shell

I’m A Real Shell by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Are you a real person, or are you just a shell?
Sent here from heaven, or sent straight from hell?
Will you take me with you to climb up this mountain,
Or leave me back down in the ditch where I cower down?

Are you a real person, or are you just a shell?
Don’t know you at all, or do I know you well?
Thinkin’ for sure time would kill all this wonder,
But right on back here I am crashing like thunder

Are you a real person, or are you just a shell?
Why do I give a shit? Why can’t I tell?
There’s gotta be somethin’ deep in me that’s fell
And I bury it deep so that no one can tell

Are you a real person, or are you just a shell?
Were you sent here to me from heaven or hell?
I just plain don’t care no more, now can you tell?
My bottomless pit of a heart’s not for sale

Are you a real person, or are you just a shell?
Sent here from heaven, or sent straight from hell?
Walked straight away hoping absence would fix me
But all I am doing is wonderin’ if you missed me

Are you a real person, or are you just a shell?
‘Cause I’m not a person now, buried as well
I’ve not been a person since that time that I fell
No longer a person, now I’m just a shell

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.
