Spinning Like a Top

My Broken Heart

You wind me up

and leave me spinning.


You say something

that melts my heart.


Can you blame me

for hoping for more?


My head revolves 

around thoughts of you.


You don't even know

the effect you have on me.


I want you to want me

as much as I want you.


But I know you are just

trying to be nice.


You think I'm pretty,

but I doubt it goes beyond that.


So I'd wish you'd let me go

like a rogue top.


I won't be strong enough

to say goodbye myself.


Not with the possibility

of what we could be.


Even though that would break 

my heart more than anything.
