yes, i like to use common sentences such as this one....but with an added question about how to play with the sentence. maybe it will take me to a new place. or at least to a new question......

I have actually done that before. In a night time cold medicine haze I laid in bed with the lights off and not being able to see my hands, I reached for my feet to make sure they were still there.

so your feet helped you see what your eyes could not?

Does the world seem smaller in the dark? Or infinite? Does the world seem minuscule under a microscope? Or grandiose?

In the dark, or under light we see what we feel. Depending on how you're feeling the world can be seen as infinite shrouded possibilities, or a coffin.

To me, I guess, what we see is a symbol of our optimism or lack thereof.

And since I'm a slave to my emotions, my world alternates with alarming regularity between a coffin and infinite possibility.

The candle (or darkness) doesn't get much of a say in what it lets me see.

Do candles grow or shrink your world?
