To be honest, the only part I liked even remotely was
of shattered dreams
and shattered walls
that only worked
a little while
and staring back
into days before
and days after
With a topic as fruitful as PTSD, and with the snippet above, this has the potential to be something moving. Right now, though, it's choppy and empty; it doesn't say anything to me at all. It feels like you just looked for the saddest words and ideas you could find and threw them altogether, and this was the outcome.
You need to at least HINT to the reader what exactly is going on, first. Because right now, I've got no idea what you're trying to get at. The only way I had even an inkling was from the title itself. After that, you need to sit down and gather some better word choices and phrases. Finally, you can establish some sort of flow and I'm sure this can be a truly heartbreaking read.
((I'm really new here so if this kind of blunt critique is looked down upon, I'm very sorry and please let me know.))
