I prefer rhyme and meter to be an inherent part of poetry and generally write with a solid rhyme scheme and a decent meter (harder to follow) . However, I do believe that all a good poem needs is good context, subtext and flow. Non-rhyming poetry too can be excellent and I say that from not just reading a lot of contemporary poetry but also having written some, despite my discomfort with the style.
