There are many different forms of poetry.
Personally I write and only write what's called "Free Verse" poetry. Many people don't understand Free Verse because it doesn't rhyme or they don't understand the metaphors used.
Popular forms of poetry
Rhyme -- A rhyming poem has the repetition of the same or similar sounds of two or more words, often at the end of the line.
Ballad -- A poem that tells a story similar to a folk tail or legend which often has a repeated refrain.
Couplets -- A couplet has rhyming stanzas made up of two lines.

Just to name a few.
Regardless of your preference, poetry is the art of the heart and best read with an open mind.
A poet is painting a picture and one reading a poem should try and visualize what that picture is.
So, go find a book of poems then, sit back and enjoy the wordscape! You won't regret it.
