assume the best amidst the worst

Existence is an assumption

Either it is full, cherishable,

or dreadfully void of the reassurance and ebullience that accompany friendship

 

Melodies birthed with comrades are forever ablaze in my mind

Sharing a laugh was essential when

I had become engulfed

 

Depression had left me swathed in black,

My eyes enigmatic,

isolated to debilitation.

 

That girl was someone else, trapped amidst an intangible conundrum.

And with new assumptions came genuine serenity.


The author's comments:

This Shakespearean-style sonnet came about spontaneously during a time when I first perceived my depression in a positive light, as I felt grateful for those around me that support and love me.
