Turning My Back on Pain

Years ago when I was stuck in my youth
I drowned in loneliness and was forsaken.
Rays ascended in the tangerine eventide
and no longer did my eyes see ebon pain.

So I linger into lavender fields showering
my soul with sights of undying emerald. 
No longer am I a willow weeping with
fear and remorse scarring my bare skin.

Thank you....

I am at peace with my back turned away
from all things that bestow sorrowful fear. 

I shall walk in the light towards the sun-
since all my anguish has come undone.

Lu, the imagery, and joy of living in this poem makes me wonder if you read "dial back" as "dial up"? Wow! You have ramped it up in this one. Bravo! Trixie and I are both clapping and cheering for you to be in the winner's round!
