I don't have an issue with reading novel length work but when I write I seldom can produce more than a paragraph. Furthermore there's usually nothing like characters, setting, etc just ideas and emotions. Is there a demand for this kind of stuff among readers or am I better off just keeping it to myself?

>inb4 "Just expand it into a story"

I have tried but it never works. More to the point it just never feels right. It's hard to explain, but most of the time it feels as if the paragraph I've written is all that needed to be written. It's like a water balloon that busts if I fill it past capacity.

Just write (prose) poetry. Or do like Borges and make like your summarizing much larger works as short stories.

Big lumbering tomes are overrated, a single good poem can give you far more effect than wading through 300-500 pages of hit and miss

It sounds liek it's the perfect length for imageboard posts

As said, prose poetry or start participating in exercising your creativity, perhaps creative exercise may help you see extensions which don't cause a feeling of artificial inflation.

Check out Lydia Davis' works. However, like the other anon suggested, just write in verse instead.
