Does Charlotte Mew describe her Room or her mind?

In the poem “Rooms”, Charlotte Mew tells us that her room is a space where she can’t get out off. I believe that this means that there is something inside the room which doesn’t let her get out. Maybe some toy of her childhood of a picture of one of her dead siblings. She might feel that if she leaves the bedroom she might never be able to get back inside, therefore she will forget of her family. Maybe for poetic reasons she uses a room to describe this, but in reality it is her mind. She still carries the thought of her dead relatives and that stops her from moving on. She had traumas because of death and loneliness, so she might have felt that the only company she would ever have would be the memories of her family. Therefore, she deciding to close herself and not show any interest or capacity to meet new people is not a cause of her loneliness but a consequence.
