I am an artist bound only for the poet's glory....But only achieve half of the success that my dreams aspire to find, And to what do the whispers tell me of this failure...To what end to they haunt my eternal dark dreams...

He was a man of almost satisfaction, he was a man of almost no social interaction.
He was a man with almost and utmost order but he was a man with almost every disorder.
This man was almost always bound to succeed, but fate had different plans and he almost failed.
This man was soon almost bound for a undeniable defeat, the man continued to fight and he almost prevailed.
This man is almost a social outcast, this man is almost a mere stalemate or an impasse.
He is almost always difficult, and almost always is the one to give the last insult.
He is almost always holds his anger in, and almost never has time to confess his sins.
Most days he feels almost deprived of sleep, and others he is in an almost complete agonizing pain or just waiting for pain to creep.
Who is this man, who in which I speak about, he is a memory nothing more than a cloud.
“ A memory of what almost was?”
YES! ……….Almost.

I liked it. It was interesting and very attention grabbing. The structure was good, the arrangement was great, and the idea that this poem has the ability to relate to many people is also another factor that makes this poem all the more interesting. Great work and thank you for sharing!

The word placement could have been better. For example: "almost always is the one to give the last insult." could have been "is almost always the ...." but still great work :)
