ggplot2 may be a nice package, but it won't help if you do not
understand the underlying issues. Your code is too incomplete so that we
cannot fix it. Better think about how you would draw a polygon manually
and what you did in R.
And note that in
polygon(c(time[1:j],time[1:j]),c(x,y),col="grey")
Your time vector does not fit to x nor y (and you probably want to
reverse the second entries in each c() call.
