Do you think that poetry has to rhyme in every line?
I do believe that rhyme is necessary to poems. Otherwise, it's just prose with a lot of line breaks. But I don't believe that couplets are the only way. I am a fan of, for example, rhyming every other line, or every third. It keeps the flow going without being too pushy.
