The story expresses the main character’s inner world. The objects, the monsters and colours in the work reflect a helpless, pressurised and anxious feeling. At the beginning, he tries to clear any obstacle in his heart with violence, but it in turn grows and starts swallowing him. It is obsession that traps a person in darkness.

Obsession is a disturbing preoccupation with an unreasonable idea or feeling. Even though we could force ourselves to forget this feeling temporarily, this could be evoked unconsciously by different kinds of symbolic cognition from time to time. This kind of emotion feels like falling into the swirl. We can neither reach the ground nor escape from this spiritual shackles.
