sadness called

sadness called
and left a message:
sleep all day (or not at all)
eat more (or nothing)
keep crying (when no one looks)
pretend you’re okay (no one believes it)

Someone I follow on Twitter posted this image of Patti Smith’s quote, but I could only see the words “sadness called.” The phrase begged to be a poem, written for Day 3 of the  NaBloPoMo/Nano Poblano/NoMo challenge.
