I like how you flow through details that aren't the same things that are often said. The only thing I can't empathize with is fearing the end. I find that even cycles don't repeat as much when you stop expecting them to. It's best to enjoy the ride without thinking a crash into happening.
-EDIT- I guess I misunderstood your meaning in a few lines. I like this version better. The new lines are clearer and seem to fit the thrust of the rest more cohesively.
