the final attempt to feel

Here, a girl feels completely numb. In an attempt to feel her own existence, she turns to pain, the strongest feeling. She feels entirely alone and detached from not only the outside world, but her own self. So she reaches for a blade in her desperation to feel something, anything, before she fades away.
