    slowly the blood starts to thicken and movement gestures through the veins giving way to suddenly twitching muscles as the man awakes...its been three months of a deep sleep.
    with the system shut down and the mind dormant, the thought of active movement slips him deeper into a sudden vision of a life beyond and past the first half before the sleep.

    he feels the blood gushing to his feet and the muscles awake and the bones crack themselves to life again. Suddenly he stands.
    He looks ahead of him but doesn't register what it is he sees the feeling of blooding reclaiming its position and giving rise to life again in every vein and part of his body is quite overwhelming.

    He stands, tall and dark
    he stands, refused inside the ark of darkness,
    he chooses the light to be a man by himself in the light without the warmth and comfortability and familiarity of the darkness.
    he stands in the cold light piercing against his skin.
    a tear drops from his eyes burning his cheek-he's excited at feeling.
    he feels..
    he's truelly overwhelmed by the existance of all this he feels. he reacts- he is awake, he is, awake..

    he takes a step and stops. he takes another step and another and faster and faster he goes-re runs! the winds blasts his face and the light blinds his face as he rans towards it-the light. he grows weary eventually and drops to the ground..he's heaving his barely existant breath to come out..it comes in quicking panting and finally, his body calms down.He hears his heart beating loudly in his ears..he feels the sweat on his body..he leans his face on the ground... And once again sleeps. The blood starts to thin, movement ceases and darkness returns...hibernation
