Dead in My Head

Dead in My Head by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Lost scraps of paper float through the wind
Wondering if I’ll ever see them again
Lost bits of memory flow through my mind
I try to forget and leave them behind
Your words fill my ears from inside my head
To listen again or leave them for dead
You’re just like my words that float through the air
Not looking back not stopping to care

Wanna be with you, but just in my head
My heart is just broken and left me for dead
You never heard the words that I said
My soul is all homeless, my body’s been bled

Landscapes fly by the windshield in my mind
I rev the engine then leave them behind
Try to steer clear of these spots that are blind
Moving my mirrors ‘til I change what I find
Try to speed up troubles stay right behind
With my one sided reflective memories mind
Tryin’ to erase all the bad I let in
But cleaning the mind doesn’t undo the sins

Wanna be with you, but just in my head
My heart is just broken and left me for dead
You never heard the words that I said
My soul is all homeless, my body’s been bled

Wanna be with you, but just in my head
My heart is all broken, just leave me for dead
You never heard the words that I said
Now your body is homeless ’cause my soul’s been bled
Now we are both soulless ‘cause we are both dead

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, “I started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that it’s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.”
