As the keyboard taps - 3rd draft

As the keyboard taps - 3rd draft

As the keyboard taps at rapid pace

Lines of thoughts propel  join in the race
As words and images intertwine
And metaphors leap, line to line
Each jockeying to find their place.

Nimble fingers maintain the chase
To finely craft a work of grace
Rhythm and metric beat combine
As the keyboard taps

Letters form a tight embrace
As stanzas seek their rightful place
Every symbol and every sign
Stamp out their mark and, by design
Echoes of words leave their trace
As the keyboard taps.

I'm not happy with the 2nd line 2nd stanza ,but can't think of an alternative yet.
