Saint of Scars

You are the saint of my scars,
of my parents screams inside my skull,
of prayers and catechisms of hurt
carved into my flesh like roots
of the most curious flower.
I wear the medallion of your memory
around my neck like a talisman
able to ward off demons
haunting me from my past.
And although I know
it's merely an invention of my mind,
I still perform exorcisms with it.
