UntitledI had this belief in youUntitled by xdarkbeauty73x
In everything I ever believed in
As quick as injection to the vein
A phone call from the brain
Begging for oxygen
And crying in pain
How do you break a soul?
Rip out every bone in my body
One by one
As if searching for the cancer
You feel me breathing through her
In a heart beat that stirs
Do you say my name?
Can you see what we were?
How do you murder a friend?
I heard your passion last night just like
The night before
Listening to that same haunting tone
The riiiiiiing of your telephone
The night you tied me to my throne
Killing execution style
The only thing I've ever known
How could I forgive you again?

and trying so hard
to convince myself to embrace my flaws
I treaded so gracefully across
With the emptiness of the ocean
Being like the surface beneath my feet
Glancing up I saw her brave
With the body of a child but the heart of a giant
Slipping off the sidewalk's edge
Then rising quickly with her innocent
New baby pink bike
On her second try I smiled
And as she rode swiftly past
She said with such pride
"My first time on my own"
It was the most amazing thing
Meeting the memory of me
Kiss, YesThis is going to beKiss, Yes by MissAudreyKaye
to get you through
until you can hold me
I'm only crying because
I love you
and you're killing me
Leaving ChronicallyIf when you leftLeaving Chronically by MissAudreyKaye
you told me you didn't
it would be easier
But easier is not the
Also, there is a difference
between sex and
and I've figured it out.
Isn't it amazing how many new deviations are submitted daily on dA?
That the amount of people who are interested in dA increases daily?
And the fact that so many artists have found a platform to dicuss and present their work to others?
Without a doubt it's a big, interesting and versatile community.
But isn't it amazing to always see the same artists on the frontpage every single day concerning the fact that so many new deviations have been submitted?
We're all aware of that and believe that this has to change. It is already quite difficult for the "unknown" artists to promote their work and gain more attention.
Clearly, we do not intend to deny the skills of those great artists who enrich the community by sharing their magnificent work. But we do intend to enhance the platform in such a way that "unknown" artists might get a real chance to draw the public attention to their own pieces of work by promoting it on the front page of the community.
In our opinion we think it unjust to only have the chance to be represented on the front page if one has the luck of having many watchers.
We would like a better system which allows a deviation to be seen on the front page if, for example, it has 'only' reached about 40 favourites and about 200 views.
Take a look at the actual situation: You have uploaded an impressive piece or art that gets faved according to the number of your total views/watchers. Then, however, a more popular deviant uploads a more or less 'average' deviation and automatically reaches more than the double of your favourites/views in a mere moment.
A new structure of the frontpage could enhance the actual competition on dA, i.e. popular deviants wouldn't be able to best the "unknown" artists by posting a rather average deviation.
A reasonable alternative to present the "daily top favourites" on the front page would be a bigger amount of thumbs which would show the 40 best deviations of the day in a random order.
We think it's in everyone's interest to change the current situation and make dA a place where creating and sharing unique art plays a far bigger role than scrambling for new watchers.
