confessions of a clonazepam addict

I don't feel anxious any more
so I just feel bored,
dizziness or clumsiness,
and my speech seems slurred.
I checked with my doctor
about my increased in thirst
which has left dryness of mouth
so which one came first?
the doctor asked if I thought
I had a false sense of well-being.
I said who said that?
I'm having changes in vision.
I was trembling and shaking
unusually tired and week
suddenly felt unsteady
and fell down in the street.
I don't remember the events
taking place right after that
just a recollection of false beliefs
that can't be changed by the facts.
they call these delusions
or simply things that aren't there
so hallucinations are common
or at least that's what I hear
so I suffer behaviour changes
and have trouble in sleeping,
muscle weakness, sore throat,
skin rash or itching
I've had fevers and chills
and certain irritability
but the best part of all
has been the change in sexual ability
