Rhyme scheme is up to the poet, some popular rhyme schemes are; aabb, ccbb, ddbb, or abab, cbcb, dbdb as The last line remains the refrain and rhymes with another line in the stanza. Rhyme scheme used is up to the poet. Three stanzas is the minimum length but can be as many as the poet wishes.
Trapped Heart

Black shades cover my soul's window,
hiding it from love's moonlit glow.
Darkness rests upon my heart's floor,
trapped behind the pain's wooden door.

Sorrow forms paintings on the wall,
and shadows linger down the hall.
Emptiness forms my heart's decor,
trapped behind the pain's wooden door.

Anguish hovers on the ceiling,
and spirit's white paint is peeling.
Dust covers interior's core,
trapped behind the pain's wooden door.

good writing, but found it depressing, kinda hopeless, maybe that's what you wanted? But then, I'm new to this, what do I know? Would like to see the door torn down.

Once again, simply beautiful.
