Waltzing with Fire

Stepping closer to the coals
of a fire once red,
led by the provocation of temptation
and by flammable words long dead.
A maker of this element places a coal in his palm,
though smoking with heat his hand is steady and calm.
The heat from this charcoal cant burn through his skin, but if he blew on this ember he might be scorched from within.
Would I be a liar to say he's playing with fire?
