If you go to Georgia May’s Instagram page, @_gxrge, you’d never know a poetess of such talent exists behind the various pictures of food, shoes, fruit, and landscape photos, but then again, maybe that’s just one more reason it’s so important to not judge a book by its cover. 😉
Georgia’s untitled poem is part of the second section of The Annual, titled ‘The Love We Accept,’ because it is the perfect representation of the love so many of us settle for even though it’s not always the love we really want, need, or deserve. Georgia’s is just one of 11 other poems that follow that same model, too, which – at least in our minds – demonstrates that love has changed very little in the past millennium even if we have.
Do you know what it’s like to desire something so passionately, that no matter how twisted or distorted its form when it finally appears, you accept it without question? We sincerely hope not (even though instinct says otherwise). If you haven’t had that unfortunate experience yet, then we hope Georgia’s poem will be the inspiration you need to let patience prevail. Love will find you! Take your time, though, and make sure it’s the type of love that will lift you up – not tear you down.
Please show your support for Georgia May by visiting her page on Instagram, and while you’re at it, stop by our shop to pick up a copy of The Annual which is available in both physical and digital formats. We’re so proud to have her work included in our anthology this year, and it would mean the world to us to have your support. ^.^
