In Times Like This- a poem

In Times Like This
K.N. Lee

In times like this
I write rhymes like this
Cleverly encapsulating 
A moment I can't miss

Words beckon
Then hiss
Beg me for a kiss
Shuts down dreams 
And nightmares
For a second of such bliss
Like nails on a chalkboard
Screeching like a banshee
Hovering like a black cloud
Smothering like a dark shroud

Possessing my pen
While I frown
Then grin
Such wonders words weave
Until I sketch 
The end
