All that we see or dream is but a dream within a dream
-Edgar Allen Poe

Darkness all around me,
I creep around the night.
I see no life anywhere,
but a scream of terror comes out of nowhere.
Running, running, running.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
The horror filled nightmare called life still haunts me.
I run, run, run.
For nowhere there is to hide,
so all I can do is run.
For my life is in danger of the unknown.
I call out for someone to save me,
but nobody answers.
Nobody except the nightmare called life.
Darkness swallows me whole as I run.
I cry out, cursing at whatever haunts me.
The nightmare called life is upon us all and we will never be able to run from it.

The author's comments:
Everyone has gone through or is going through hard times. You may want to try to run and hide from it, but that ever works. All I have to say is, you will be okay once you get through it all, I know for sure and because I've been through quite a bit of stuff. I wish you luck with whatever it may be that your going through and I want you to know, people do care.

This is excellent writing. I'm sorry you're going through such a hard time, though. If you need to talk with the anonymity of the Internet, I'm willing to listen. :)
