Domestic violence: Livingroom

This morning it’s all quiet again.
Your mother’s nowhere to be seen.
But there’s a broken bedside-lamp in the trash.
Did he hit her with it?
Has she left? Has she left you behind?
What will happen to you if she really leaves?
You don’t know. You’re only ten.
All you know is it’s too quiet now.
Quiet is scary.
Sometimes it’s scarier than chaos and slamming doors,
yelling and pushing and being spat at.

Wonderful!!!
Great!!!
Now this is what I call a great deal of creativity.
This is really a good advert copy
Everyone with common sense should not be told what this advert is portraying.
