Hostage

Hostage by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Absence makes the heart grow stoic
Sympathy’s just not heroic
If I ever have to miss you
Ice cold nothing’s all I cling to

Universal dried up wasteland
Holds my universe in its hands
It’s too dark for me to breathe here
Visual snow won’t let me see clear

Let me go, don’t let me go
I need to need more than I show
Let me go, don’t let me go
Or else I’m gonna lose control

Pumped up products of our upkeep
Makes our softened hearts and souls weep
But these tears are mostly harmless
Given what our standards cost us

It’s a price we paid with sin and
I should never let you in
Vanity’s much worse than greed
I can’t have you but you can’t leave

Let me go, don’t let me go
I need to need more than I show
Let me go, don’t let me go
Or else I’m gonna lose control

Let me go, don’t let me go
I need to need more than I show
Let me go, don’t let me go
Or else I’m gonna lose control

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.
