Heart on a String

Day in and day out
I dangle by this thread
At times I want to scream at him
He’s messing with my head!

I don’t think he really knows
Just what I’m going through
He really has no idea
He doesn’t see it from my view.

He introduced me to a friend
“Girlfriend” I heard him say.
He didn’t bother to clarify
So I sat smiling all damn day!

He told me later that evening
That it was “the easiest thing to say”
My car swerved a little bit.
My mind began to sway.

I told him that I missed him
He said he missed me too.
I replied “That’s a good sign”
But he didn’t share my view.

I feel so like a yo-yo
He has my heart on a string
Will he ever feel the same?
Or am I just a play thing?

Is there to be a future?
Or is it just the past?
Maybe I’m being hasty
Or moving just too fast?

Surely it’s not inconvenient
To want that simple title.
Though I guess I’ll sit and wait.
After all, it’s not really vital.

So there he stands. I know,
He’ll pull my string again
And when he does, I know,
This yo-yo will continue to spin.
