Gulsher, when it's iambic PENTAMETER without rhyme, it's called blank verse. Otherwise, I don't know what you mean by the " traditional" iambic form. A poem of various length all iambic lines would not be any kind of formal poem that I know, but it would be hard to call it free verse. Lamont would call it musical; I'd probably call it constipated.
