    Do you like to rhyme in your poetry?

    I find that rhyming is often distracting if you don't pay attention to what the rhyme is highlighting in your poem.  It becomes a drain on your creativity if it and meter force you to consider adding words or lines to your poem just to maintain either concept.

    Yes, if it's natural, I mean if you don't have to change the mood or meaning of the poem just for the sake of the rhyme.

    I used to like rhyming lines when writing a poem but when I figured it was getting kind of clich├ęd, I tried composing in free verse. Sometimes, the impact of a free verse is strong, especially when you just put one or two words in a single line.
    Also, I found picking up words that rhyme. Sometimes when they don't sound good, I totally discard the whole composition.

    Yes, I like rhyming. Most of my verses come out naturally that way. Perhaps that is because I always like reading rhyming poems. I don't know

    It is about your emotions in your words.  If you can't feel what you write, then you will struggle to rhyme.

    Of course, you could also use a thesaurus if your vernacular is not august.  Even I use them to find the words I see in my mind's eye.
    However, if I cannot find the words to express what I feel, I express something else.  Eventually those feelings unexpressed will find a way to do so.

    Rhyming is great if it allows the poem to still make sense.  I find often a person can spend too long thinking of words that rhyme and they can deviate from the subject. I enjoy a variety of poetry some with rhyme and some without.  In my opinion it is the imagery and rhythm of the poem that is more important.  But hey what do I really know I've not been writing it for very long and am just practising myself. Just write from the heart and then the words will tumble out, if they rhyme and make perfect sense then that's fabulous!

    I try to make it rhyme. Not in the tacky way like roses are red but I like to put a rhythm to it.

    This question could have more than one answer.
    It depends on the inspirational and emotional mood.
    For some topic rhymes just kill the poetry.
    I do agree rhyme poetry sounds like music but on the other hand free style combined with a proper punctoation gives more freedom and fantasy......
    Great question in great niche!!!
