Poem - The Cut (Trigger Warning, Maybe?)

Not sure about the trigger warning, some people don't even realise what it's about... Glad of any opininons!

Between my fingers my silver companion

Shines in all its lustrous glory

Ready to draw the scarlet ribbon

Of the lover telling the sanguine story

The first cut; the sharp sting

That crimson bead, a symbol of violence

Dangerous, yet so alluring

It quietens the noise and amplifies the silence

My dead heart is bought back to joyous life

Even as the battle in my head subsides

With the cut came the end of that strife

But that night, a piece of my soul also died
