Quote analysis:

These violent delights have violent ends,

And in their triumph die like fire and powder,

Which as they kiss consume.

violent = intense, rough, dangerous, passionate, sudden.

delights = joy, happiness

triumph = win

fire = fire,heat

powder = gunpowder

kiss = kiss or be together

consume = explode.

So I think this quote basically says that sudden or intense happiness will also lead to a  sudden end. That they might not win until their death, and in the end, everything will end or blow up the situation, but they will be together.
