Dark black tides

With blank deep eyes
Staring the dark infinity
No words uttered,
Like a rock struck in the reef.
Your scream hidden beneath
Is enough to deafen thousand ears.

I know you are waiting for them
Will the next tide bring them back to you?
Tell me young man
Have all your dreams and hopes been carried away? 
With the dark black huge tides
To the Ocean you once adored.

( this is what I witnessed when the Tsunami attacked our country. The young man remained insane afterwards. He is still living)
