Rhyming and Lyrics – The Ceiling

The Ceiling by Melodie Yvonne

You break my fucking heart and then chastise for having feelings
You slice my soul wide open then you yelled at me for bleeding
But still somehow I miss you and my body aches for leaving
And all I can do is cry now and just stare up at the ceiling

My knees are breaking from all of the time that I spent kneeling
The part of me I gave I didn’t know that you were stealing
But every single tear I’ve cried would all be worth repeating
If I thought for just one second it’d help you with your healing

But every single second was a second you were leading
Collecting all of me wasn’t enough, you got so greedy
You got me all addicted, but then turned and called me needy
Screamed at me you needed air and then you guilted me for breathing

You told me you need space, but won’t give me the space I’m needing
I thought I was in love with you, but love is so deceiving
I tried to douse our dumpster fire, but you just gasoline it
So all I can do is cry now and just stare up at the ceiling

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.
