Poets use rhyme all the time: half-rhyme, internal rhyme, broken rhyme, leonine rhyme, chain rhyme, random rhyme and vowels echoing intimately from inside one line across to the next.

  Rhyme in Ghazals   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The addition of "-s" or "-ed" to rhyme words, if used extremely sparingly--I would suggest one per ghazal, possibly two if the poem is long enough--can add a slight alteration to the mono-rhyme, and keep the whole poem fresh and buoyant.
However, as a half of the rhyme-refrain combo that strings the beads of the stanzas together, rhyme should be one of the major focuses when attempting to write ghazals.
By varying the parts of speech used in rhyme, by varying the syllabic count of rhyme words, and, in cases of extreme playfulness, by rhyming masculine and feminine words together, a poet can avoid some of the common paths that lead towards unsuccessful ghazals.
