A head start!! (with Idioms)

I was obsessed and I held my head high, since your love was written all over your face,
I believed that you were a sight for sore eye, a shot in the arm,
Ignoring the gut feeling of my friends, I let my hair down,
Now, I feel ashamed that I have been wet behind the ears,
Anyways, thanks to God, the slip of your tongue was an eye-opener,
You have shot yourself in your foot,
The skeleton in the cupboard is out, thankfully…
Now, the egg is on my face,
Being kicked in the teeth, I have lamented enough that am facing a bad hair day,
You still believe that I'll drag my heels on our courtship because my heart always goes out to you?
My ears are to the ground, I have found my feet and I am determined to get you off my chest, no matter how hard you rack your brain,
You are a weight off my shoulders; I am resolute that I want my nose clean,
Don't ever reckon that I would have lost my face on knowing your true color,
 I am jumping around like a dog with two tails, happily ever after!!
 I wish we never meet eye to eye, ever again in our lives!
