Short Story Conceptual Intro

So I'm considering a new short story... playing around with a few ideas, and this is the one that has stuck so far. Thoughts?

**********

It is said that the heart is a muscle. And like any muscle, it grows stronger with use. A strong heart sounds of a war drum…

THUMP THUMP

Egging an army forward to battle. Not all hearts beat as a drum.

THUMP Thump

Some merely emulate the sound of a well organized squad coming to attention.

Thump thump

But within them all…

Thump… thump…

Is the sound of life.

thump…… thump……

Fading life…

thump……… thump………

And yet…

thump……….

That does not prevent you from feeling it…

thump


As it stops.
