At Least the Memories Last


Selena Molinari '24


Was I your favorite “I can’t do this”?

Was I your favorite “I wish it had been different“?

Was I your favorite what if?


She wished she was
the only regret
She wished
and wished
Ever believing it
Became her very
longest regret.


Silence speaks loudest
When it’s dealt with
In the somber corner of your room
Where the polaroids once hung


She strung them up wishing images
Could come to life


Was I your favoriteit won’t ever be how it was“?

You were my favorite “at least the memories last.”
