​Every fold pushes it deeper Its edges traced Tucked beneath skin Burrowing to release itself only to find a room four walls no door (poem written by Angela Elizabeth Slater) Tucked beneath is reflection of turmoil of emotions that the pandemic has instilled. Time itself feels as though it has been unfolding in new ways and that with every fold of time emotions can become more overwhelming but also result in us pushing them deeper inside, underneath the surfrace.The last lines of the poem shows how I have been searching for a sense of release, freedom outside of the pandemic situation but I find myself both mentally and physically being trapped which is reflected in the lines four walls, no door.
