Poetic Endorphins

For years now, I’ve realized that writing poetry releases endorphins in my brain; no matter how anxious or despairing I am, writing or editing a poem acts as a temporary anodyne, restoring my self-confidence. What makes me a poet evidently seems to keep me going.

So tell me how is it that I only seem to be able to write Poetry, when I'm feeling not so 'happy'? Does this mean it is my natural release mechanism?

The release is the release, whether happy or sad.
