It's not totally clear what your \dots mean, but you can put 
(\protect)-ed linebreaks into captions using the caption package. 
But It looks like you want something different, from simply a 
linebreak, namely parts of captions that appear with different parts 
of a figure.  Perhaps the subfig package is what you need.  But 
here's a simple example of a left justified caption using the caption 
package, although I'm not sure it's actually what you want. -Alan
