Poem: Ghost
Emilie Autumn Lyrics

Did you know sometimes it frightens me
When you say my name and I can't see you
Will you ever learn to materialize before you speak
Impetuous boy, if that's what you really are
How many centuries since you've climbed a balcony
Or do you do this every night with someone else
You tell me that you never leave
And I am almost afraid to believe it
Why is it me you've chosen to follow
Did you like the way I look when I am sleeping
Was my hair more fun to tangle
Are my dreams more entertaining
Do you laugh when I'm complaining that I'm all alone
Where were you when I searched the sea
For a friend to talk to me
In a year where will you be
Is it enough for you to steal into my mind
Filling up my page with music written in my hand
You know I'll take the credit for I must have made you come to me somehow
But please try to close the curtains when you leave at night
Or I'll have to find someone to stay and warm me
Will you always attend my midnight tea parties
As long as I set your place
If one day your sugar sits untouched
Will you have gone forever
Would you miss me in a thousand years
When you will dry another's tears
But you say you'll never leave me
And I wonder if you'll have the decency
To pass through my wall to the next room
While I dress for dinner
But when I'm stuck in conversation
With stuffed shirts whose adoration
Hurts my ears, where are you then
Can't you cut in when I dance with other men
It's too late not to interfere with my life
You've already made me a most unsuitable wife
For any man who wants to be the first his bride has slept with
And you can't just fly into people's bedrooms
Then expect them to calmly wave goodbye
You've changed the course of history
And didn't even try
Where are you now
Standing behind me
Taking my hand
Come and remind me
Who you are
Have you traveled far
Are you made of stardust too
Are the angels after you
Tell me what I am to do
But until then I'll save your side of the bed
Just come and sing me to sleep

I named my cat after this poem, because I love it so much.


This is my favourite poem ever. I'm fascinated by ghosts, possession and the paranormal.


I believe this is about her muse, not a ghost, but both can be valid :)


I absolutely love all of her poems

Calissa Carillon

To this day this is absolutely my favorite poem. I love Emilie~♡

Lovely Luminance

Just lovely. I'm such a fan of Emilie, and this poem is one of the main reasons. I sincerely enjoy her work and I'm very glad to have discovered her. Thanks bunches for posting this. ❤


This almost made me cry my eyes out, because it was beautiful and I relate to it so much. Most of EA's songs and poems have that effect on me.
