Rhyming and Lyrics – Maybe

Maybe by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

Should I have said you won’t see me again?
Should I have told you that this is the end?
Should I have wrapped my arms tighter ’round you?
Maybe I should’ve but what could I do?

It took me a lifetime to build up the courage
Took me so long to choke down all my nerves
Took every ounce of every spine that I had left
To walk through those doors knowing you couldn’t care less

Maybe I wasn’t as brave as I could be
Maybe if I’d followed you’d have wanted to be with me
But even when you lead I still end up alone
You let snakes fill your house and left me in the cold

Now I can’t compete with that slithery nature
And I won’t bow down to your twin’s siphoned stature
So all that is left is a check you can’t cash
From a piece of my heart that you ground into ash

Should I have said you won’t see me again?
Should I have told you that this is the end?
Should I have wrapped my arms tighter ’round you?
Maybe I should’ve but what could I do?

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.
