Boundaries tend to force creativity to show up where it would otherwise not appear. Poetry's an art form and, like any other, shouldn't be taken on loosely (unless you happen to have a Bukowski-like ability for spontaneous verse, but most don't and shouldn't convince themselves they do). It's popular to think otherwise, but every art's hard work.

However, since you'd chosen not to use meter, I wasn't recommending that you do, and I don't see anyone else doing so either. The suggestion was that you make it read better, not that you rewrite it entirely.
