CDLXX - Poor Reception

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were heave, ponder and valid.

Poor Reception

The message was quite short on words,
All texts these days are brief.
He pondered what it really meant:
The conclusion gave him grief.
Was it valid, what he inferred?
The words required belief—
But when he learnt their true intent
Heaved a sigh of relief.

  6. What is sent and what is received is not always the same thing.

  7. There is always a possibility that you may be interpreting the message in a negative way according to your fluctuating moods.
    This comment is in no way meant to be hostile or a personal attack on the equilibrium of your mental state. Just thought I would clarify this:)

  10. Those three words are truly full of possibilities and you captured that so perfectly, J Cosmo.
