My girlfriend's adorable cat. I can't get over how pretty she is.

With dA launching Support, I feel like it's time for a conversation about support itself.  As a poet, I often feel neglected and ignored on deviantART.  I feel like poetry and other written forms are seen as less important than visual art.  Maybe I haven't found the poetry community within the larger dA community.  Maybe I haven't reached out enough to connect with other poets.  Maybe I haven't put the time into it.  But I still have this nagging notion that poetry is seen as juvenile and rudimentary.  Like it's not as sophisticated an art form.  And I'm sure plenty of other artists have had the same thoughts about the way their mediums are viewed on here.  There seems to be a hierarchy of mediums, with digital visual art at the top, and poetry at the bottom.

I might be overreacting to the lack of attention my poetry gets versus my visual art.  I feel much prouder of my written works than my visual ones.  Any other poets out there who feel like your poetry is being ignored?

his path diverges from mine
leading him away, afar
to another heart, another love
another woman

our paths were once as one
leading us to futures
containing dreams and hopes
together

but time erodes passion
washing away our bonds
collapsing paths
on which we’ve travelled

paths become rivers,
forded by regret
littered by debris
of broken hearts

Like Peter Pan, without the homosexual undertones. Probably.

Also, rather than British, I'm completely Canadian. I live in Northern Ontario and enjoy my super-chilled winters. My dog, Daisy, is the opposite. I think she's southern at heart.
