I’m playing with fire

And I’m bound to get burned.
Of this I’m sure.
We are both like matches unstruck,
But when you’re near,
I fizzle at the core.
We could use corny analogies
Like “In your eyes I see sparks fly”
Or “Your love sets my heart aflame.”
As stated before,
Those would both be lame.
And part of me just wants to become used up ashes and ember,
So please just give me heat,
And extinguish me quick,
Before I can remember,
The kiss of your blaze.
