Could someone tell me what is the meaning of "heart on a string"?
Thank you in advance.

I've always thought it meant that the person whose heart is on the string was desperately in love. "You've got my heart on a string. My heart is your toy to play with, like a child plays with a yo-yo. No matter how badly you treat me, I'll still love you."

A writer indeed!
Btw. I agree with you!
