Rhyme scheme can vary I have done multiple in different end rhymes.
But they must have a rhyme scheme…
because their trust extends
beyond the boundary that will spring
from propriety and good common sense
between casual friends. Their trust may stem from shared
experiences or things learned at expense
of innocence with feelings bared.
If that trust should fail, how
can they be now
