ASLEEP

So The Perks of Being a Wallflower is amazing, and I have to write down this one part that meant so much to me.

To tell you the truth, I love Sam.  It’s not a movie kind of love either.  I just look at her sometimes, and I think she is the prettiest and nicest person in the whole world.  She is also very smart and fun.  I wrote her a poem after I saw her in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but I didn’t show it to her because I was embarrassed.  I would write it out for you, but I think that would be disrespectful to Sam.

The thing is that Sam is now going out with a boy named Craig.

Craig is older than my brother.  I think he may even be twenty-one because he drinks red wine.  Craig polays “Rocky” in the show.  Patrick says that Craig is “cut and hunky.”  I do not know where Patrick finds his expressions.

But I guess that he’s right, Craig is cut and hunky.  He also is a very creative person.  He’s putting himself through the Art Institute here by being a male model for JCPenney catalogs and things like that.  He likes to take photographs, and I’ve seen a few of them, and they are very good.  There is this one photograph of Sam that is just beautiful.  It would be impossible to describe how beautiful it is, but I’ll try.

If you listen to the song “Asleep,” and you think about those pretty weather days that make you remember things, and you think about the prettiest eyes you’ve known, and you cry, and the person holds you back, then I think you will see the photograph.

I want Sam to stop liking Craig.

Now, I guess maybe you think that’s because I am jealous of him.  I’m not.  Honest.  It’s just that Craig doesn’t really listen to her when she talks.  I don’t mean that he’s a bad guy because he’s not.  It’s just that he always looks distracted.

It’s like he would take a photograph of Sam, and the photograph would be beautiful.  And he would think that the reason the photograph was beautiful was because of how he took it.  If I took it, I would know that the only reason it’s beautiful is because of Sam.

I just think it’s bad when a boy looks at a girl and thinks that the way he sees the girl is better than the girl actually is.  And I think it’s bad when the most honest way a boy can look at a girl is through a camera.  It’s very hard for me to see Sam feel better about herself just because an older boy sees her that way.
