    When a candle burns, light ejects to fill the space of the roome

    Well, I wonder whether I've used the word eject properly here.

    No. I wouldn't bother with a verb there at all. Just say "light fills the room" or "light fills the [surrounding] space". Note the correct spelling of "room".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You can write A burning candle emits light. I wouldn't write "the space of the room" (no e in "room"), as the space remains as physically full or empty whether or not a candle is burning.

    You could use casts light.
