I'm thinking it's an old person? Because they are tall when they are young and when they get old they shrink, then breath, uhm... They stop breathing u guess? Haha I don't know . It's just a guess.

Could be too many things to try to pinpoint it without knowing exactly but I think it would be a little to obvious to say a human

its a candle duhh. it starts out tall when you first buy it, and the more you use it the shorter it gets. and breathe is an enemy because it can kill the flame
