Most of mine is rhyming, either every other line or every line. However, sometimes I write some freeverse too.

i tend to write mainly rhyming poems but can do others where they are like a story but not while actually bein a story

my poems always rhyme. I just can't stand poetry that doesn't rhyme. For me the great thing about poetry is that it is so ... balanced if it rhymes. And i love the balance and calmness that's in rhyming a poem no matter how sad the content it.

i can do freestyle or i can do lyrical poetry, but it depends on my mood when i am writing. the major factor i play into is writing when i start getting certain words or verses in my head. i like themes. i can understand your lore for poetry that sounds symmetrical, but i have a problem with that style as people tend to run out of words and things become very- well repetitive and dull. i fall into it too if i just want to spit something out onto a piece of paper. we all do.
give me variety!

I write all sorts of poetry. I love writing haiku with set forms like sonnets and haiku, as well as creating my own forms to fit my mood.
Sometimes a poem requires no form and just flows in a free verse kinda way. :D

whatever pleases my soul.. it isn't about the style... it's always about the brevity that pens my sentiments...

I agree. To me it's not a "poem" if it doesn't rhyme. "Free verse' can be beautiful, but to me, not a poem. Thats just not the right name for it.. If you believe otherwise, then, hey, I just wrote one of your 'poems".

I like rhythms in poetry..
If it has a strong rhythm in syllables then often I like it - it tends to flow better and leads itself more to reading aloud, and in ones head.
I like poetry such as Saul Williams and other 'slam' poetry; I think he is amazing. I also like ee cummings type 'pidgin' english poetry, and colliqual poems.
Personally I don't think poems have to rhyme, and I like experimenting with different forms, rhythms and structures. Even something such as the way words and letters are laid out on a page can be profound in itself.

There is no such thing as a good poem or bad poem just poems you like and poems you don't like. I mean would you go and buy a wine at £100 a botle cos the experts told you it was good? Or stick with the £3.50 bottle that you like. We should follow our hearts and encourage all.
Anything that get people writing has to be good in this age of computer games.
