Clear definition not available

memories on a warm wind

gentle breezes lift my face
to the emptiness of the landscape

mind awash in a flood of indecision
crowded now, where once clarity existed

life crumbling around me
seeking sanity among concrete and barbed wire

I am a hollow survivor

dreams brought peace then
now filled with choices I am incapable of making

tired of listening to those with no words for this

tired of memories carried on warm winds

PTSD takes many forms, a static definition that fits all is difficult or impossible to state in just a handful of words. It may be many things but one thing it is for certain is "real."
