some distant drums did beat

distant drums did beat
that lonely night
when I was all alone
sleeping in the veiled forest
life seemed to drudge along
there was none to hear my song
in the far distant time at night
I heard drums on my transistor
some folks were like me
in a far off jungle merrying
they must have been lonely too
but they were enjoying
as much as I wished to

I threw off the blanket
went into the open stark naked
none could have seen me
as I danced with abandoned glory
when I reentered my tent
torches flashed at me
guys were watching unabashedly
now they clapped for me..

I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back

You is a big exhibitionist, some with the torches you may have put to shame the others would just smile LOL.

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” — W.B. Yeats

you and Ian walk my stride
your true feelings never hide
I have now been slipping less
more I've been sleeping
as anyone could tell
as not many read poetry
I guess
oh hell!
