"A Sweetness About You" by D. M. Larson
Believe it or not, we ride this subway a lot together. I watch you... because there's something about you that's different from everyone... a sweetness about you. You always give up your seat for women. You even did for me once. If someone forgets a coat or a bag, you get it and chase after them. If a woman is being bugged by some creepy guy and they don't like it, you'll interrupt and make sure the woman safely gets to a taxi, even if the woman doesn't know you're doing it.
But even though you do all these nice, sweet things, you always look so stressed and unhappy. You look like you're about to have a heart attack at any moment. I see the panic in your eyes sometimes. I see the stress overwhelming you.
So I told myself, next time you looked stressed and overwhelmed and on the edge of a heart attack, I was going to give you a great big kiss.
Did you like it?
