Thank you for tagging me in this challenge @amobigbang you're the best! The challenge is to write a poem for the character of your choice. It's really no surprise I chose Steve. I'm not much of a poet, but this is my best effort!

Out of Time

There's a ticking time bomb in the sky
And you're like Atlas with the world on your shoulders
Broader now, but you're finally getting older
But you've had enough of playing soldier
A ticking time bomb in the sky
And another one inside of him
Your shadow has come for you at last
The ghost with the mechanical heart
And you can hear the clock ticking
And what do you get for the man that has everything?
Someone different came out of the ice
And you don't know who he is anymore
Neither of you should have lived this long
Born with a timer in your chest, in his head
Someone different came out of the ice
And you can't recognize each other anymore
It's been a long time since you missed that dance
Don't you dare be late this time
Because there's a ticking time bomb in the sky
And what do you get for the man that has everything but time?
For this challenge I'm tagging @AimeeH @InPlainSight @BeannachtOraibh @LAVONYORK @gummibawrx @DianaBell @DaniVO @superwholocked @OGv6FATE @lovelywhite13 @melifluosmelodi @VeronicaArtino @ShannonWalker and @ChiefAlphaGoat ^_^ Please forgive my... beginner's skill at poetry.
