    Optimism left me a thought, "Maybe it will not be so bad," before he deserted me; not even he desired to be here in this scalding inferno.

    Sometimes, commaʻs can be done not just for grammatical reasons, but for an author wanting to establish a certain structure for the sentence. Idk, it just might be my style to have a pause there, and thatʻs fine as it doesnʻt violate anything but just changing the structure slightly
