Rhyming and Lyrics – Write

Write by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Dedicated to Nel and Vernie <3 <3 <3

“Write” is what’s emblazoned here upon this shy book cover
“Write” is what is foremost in my thoughts above all other
“Write” has got me into trouble and has kept me clean
And it’s “Write” that keeps me sane in here when all the world’s obscene

Words that flow right off my hand fly faster than no other
I can’t just let you see right in, these words give me some cover
So if you’re gonna dive right in then love me like no other
‘Cause I spend my time just writin’ and I’m done with endless fodder

“Write’s” the word that Vernie passed to me through Nel’s kind hand
So I’m just gonna keep on writing all that you can stand
Take my words for what they are or take them how you want them
But remember they’re my children and just let them know you love them

Words that flow right off my hand fly faster than no other
I can’t just let you see right in, these words give me some cover
So if you’re gonna dive right in then love me like no other
‘Cause I need a jolt of passion not an unrequited lover

“Write” is what’s emblazoned here upon this shy book cover
“Write” is what is foremost in my thoughts above all other
“Write” has got me into trouble and has kept me clean
And it’s “Write” that keeps me sane in here when all the world’s obscene
Oh yes it’s “Write” that keeps me sane in here when all the world’s obscene

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.”
