    They're both idioms because they may not mean the literal term.

    Alright, thank you! One more question, the line "Your life fell apart in your hands," is that a metaphor?

    hm..any context? that could be personification, 'it' possibly being inanimate, this sentence would be giving it person-like characteristics

    Yeah "it's" I think is supposed to be someone's demeanor

    so yes, the demeanor is not alive itself, so the answer is personification
