Plastic Paradox
The man with the plastic face
He has cloudy, liquid eyes
His fibre moustache and the thick dense fog
Strengthen his disguise

As he stops to check the time
His circuits start to glow
Then a figure comes to greet him
With a face he used to know

It's a face in a leather case
It's a face he used to own
It's a face that moved through time and space
And now he's come to take it home

There was a subtle smell of sulphur
As he made time stand still
He unclenched his plastic hand
To expose a yellow pill

Then his sub processor skipped
To where it all began
To a time before his micro chips
When he was still a man
Author's Notes:
I don't quite know what inspired me to write this ...
I guess it's about regret ... wishing to have your time again
A second chance to do things right
What do you think?

I very much like this.  There's a lot going on in it, but it's also succinct, and powerful for it.  Nice job!
