If you're forcing poetry out, it's no longer fun. I often think when people worry about forcing it, or running out of ideas, or having writers block, that they feel they have some obligation to output or content. This is not the case unless you're doing it for educational or professional purposes.
If it stops being fun, stop doing it. It will in time be fun again. I've been writing for over 25 years and it's never not been fun for more than a few months.
