Ghost in my window

There’s a ghost in my window
He keeps calling my name
I cant turn him away
But I’m tired of this childish game
I wish I could let him in
Just let him hold me tight
But I know it will end me
And I won’t say good night
His hold on me is strong
I don’t quite understand
Why I keep letting him stay
And can’t seem to take a stand

Is this guilt i detect? Whom have you wronged, if it be so.

Keep writing.

This poem is really good. I like the creepiness of it. The idea that the ghost is right outside the window gives me chills. Why does the narrator want to hug the ghost though? Is she facing her past?

i really really like the beginning alot, and the idea behind it, but i feel like the ending is contradictory to the rest of the poem. just my opinion, though!

It's ambivalence. There's much emotion which the author intended. Genius i admit.
