Would you rather write poetry or short stories? I'd rather write short stories' as their easier for me to express myself. But what do you think?

I have written a few poems over the years. Most of them were bad. Some of them were alright. One or two of them, I actually liked a lot. They are a unique way to express oneself, and hopefully, I someday feel the inspiration to do it again sometime. Short Stories have always eluded me, so to speak, but I have started to really enjoy writing novelettes for Readers Digested. The issue I had with short stories is that I would always want to expand on them too much. Sometimes, too, though, I would find myself trying to almost "pad" stories to hit the requisite amount to be called a novel (specifically with horror stories) - I feel like my more recent novelettes have really let me turn the corner on that. My novelette The One Two Punchline may be among my favorite things I have written.
