Rhyming and Lyrics – I’m Leaving

I’m Leaving by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

You look at me like you think something
Your eyes are what give you away
You treat me just like I’m a nothing
And I just plain don’t like these games

Your eyes I’m just starting to realize
Are bein’ used mostly for weighing
So my mind’s runnin’ startin’ to theorize
That you just plain don’t care what I’m saying

He looks at me like I’m a something
And treats me more like I am too
So please don’t believe that I’m bluffing
When I say those two words to you

I’m leaving, I’m leaving
You’ve pushed me too far
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
You gave me these scars
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
Is what I must say
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
I’m saying today

If actions speak louder than words
Then your lazy motions are yelling
And why in the hell does it hurt?
The bruises your love leaves are telling

They tell me I should walk away
They tell me to never look back
So no longer here can I stay
You’ve done turned my blue heart to black

I’m takin my somethin’ and leavin’
Now you are the nothing I see
So don’t give me that bullshit grievin’
You never gave one shit ‘bout me

I’m leaving, I’m leaving
You’ve pushed me too far
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
You gave me these scars
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
Is what I must say
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
I’m saying today

I’m leaving, I’m leaving
You’ve pushed me too far
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
You gave me these scars
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
Is what I must say
I’m leaving, I’m leaving
I’m goin’ today

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.”
