Linguistic aspects: a short guide today to highlight some aspects.
First, I was left to my devices: here it is to say that I was alone and I was allowed to fool someone else.
Secondly, days fall away every time you realise that time goes by, but that is almost insignificant to you. You can also say that a poster can fall away, in case it breaks off from the thing it has been fixed to. Otherwise a piece of land falls aways when it slopes down. In a figurative way, if you examine that sales have fallen away recently, you get to the point that shops have sold less products lately. In addition to this, in literary British a sound (or feeling) falls away as long as it becomes weaker (see Macmillan Dictionary for further information).
Thirdly, you reduce something to rubble anytime you destroy it completely. Literally, a rubble is any piece of broken stone.
In the end, the expression: "Let the dust settle" is an excellent tip to give whenever you suggest that a person needs to calm down, after a violent outburst or breakdown.
