Rhyming and Lyrics – The Dissembler

The Dissembler by Melodie Yvonne

What I say is usually “I’m fine”
What I mean is that I’m hurtin’
I wanna speak the truth
But I don’t wanna be your burden

I say that “It’s ok”
But what I mean is that it’s not
‘Cause my heart is always broken
But it’s all the heart I got

What I say is that I’ll walk away
But really I’m still sittin’
I didn’t wanna care but
I just can’t help that I’m smitten

I wanted you to go away
But now I want you here
I just wanted you to go fuck off
But now I want you near

What I say is usually “I’m fine”
What I mean is that I’m broken
I want it to be over
But I just can’t keep from hopin’

I wanted you to give a shit
But you’re so full of pride
What you said was that you cared
But what you meant was that you lied

What I said is that we’d be friends
What I meant was that I’m broken
You said to just go with the flow
But then you left me floatin’

What I said was that “It’s all good”
What I meant is it’s just not
‘Cause my heart is all in pieces
And it’s all the heart I got

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.
