Rhyming and Lyrics – Waitin’

Waitin’ by Melodie Yvonne

I sit and wonder what’s the point
And then I smoke another joint
It’s not enough to just exist here
Wanna live but swallowed by fear
Wanna fight but I’m so tired
Don’t wanna go another mile
So then I just get stuck and sit here
Waitin’ ’til the future gets clear

I’m just waitin’ in my room
Been layin’ here since way passed noon
With all these thoughts just comin’ at me
Wish I could just let ’em have me

Wish I could just let me go
And give up everything I know
Wish I could just hit a button
And see what the fuck’s a-coming
Wish I could just make you see me
And then maybe you could free me
But I can’t so I just sit here
Waitin’ til my future gets clear

But it just keeps gettin’ fuzzy
How can you care? I don’t love me
All I am’s a lump that sits here
Barely in and barely out there
All I am’s a waste of time
Even if I give you mine
So now I’m stuck and I just sit here
Wishin’ I could draw your heart near

I’m just waitin’ in my room
Been layin’ here since way passed noon
With all these thoughts just comin’ at me
Wish I could just let ’em have me

I’m just waitin’ for the ending
‘Cause I’m just so done pretending
I just want it to be over
And I dont want to be sober
So I just curl up and lay here
Waitin’ for the coast to be clear
Waitin’ for that happy ending
If I could just go back to dreaming

I’m just waitin’ in my room
Been layin’ here since way passed noon
With all these thoughts just comin’ at me
Wish I could just let ’em have me

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.”
