That is both beautiful and heartbreaking. A perfect visual metaphor for his sin's effect on his soul.

This is beautiful, I haven't even seen this movie or any before it, but this is just the best. My favourite is the fabric texture and the red light, that's just perfect.

A man who chooses a path of hatred over a path of love is constantly tearing pieces of himself away until there is nothing left.

Oh gosh...it's too painful for me to favorite, if that makes sense, but I do have this painful feeling Kylo Ren HAS had suicidal ideation, and pretty severely.  I hope he lives, though, and finds a way to face the pain.

It almost looks like Kylo is committing suicide. It would be an interesting ending to the series and would make sense because he's so mentally unstable. I think Anakin probably would've committed suicide if he hadn't joined the dark side and became Darth Vader. I've even thought of an alternate ending where at the end of Episode III, instead of attacking Obi-Wan he stabs himself with his lightsaber.

Either that or he gets killed by Rey.

It's possible Rey might kill Kylo but she could be the only one that can save him. There are hints that he cares about her (they might very well be cousins and he remembers her from when they were younger). He might follow in his grandfather's footsteps and kill Snoke to protect Rey but ends up sacrificing his own life in the process. I think it would be very fitting considering how much he's like his grandfather he is.

This picture is about self-infliction though. It looks like he stabbed himself, which is why I mentioned suicide because that's what he looks like he's done. He's being stabbed with his own lightsaber, suggesting it's self-inflicted rather than someone else stabbing him. It could also be symbolic of his self-destruction and inner conflict.

Oh. I like your theory. I am very excited to see what JJ Ambrams (pardon if I misspelled) and the creators of Star Wars do with Kylo Ren in the future.
