JTOY is used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement), which translates best as "I am doing nothing other than thinking about you." (In other words, it is not used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.)

As it is pronounced using its individual letters (i.e., "Jay Tee Oh Why"), JTOY is classified as an initialism abbreviation. Initialisms are different to acronyms, which are spoken like words.
