Hi Kenco and welcome,
I can't write poetry when I'm not depressed. Then again, I don't need to. That was an outlet for all the bad thoughts in my head. When taking my meds, the outlet isn't necessary because I feel decent.
Karen is right, tuck the stories away for now. Trust me you will have times you are still depressed and can work on them when you need the outlet.
