I used to keep your compliments in a box around my neck.
The December after God stole dragon-smoke from your lips,
I realized I had lost the key.

Pretty, but kinda confusing, like I said about your other poem. (Snow's Deadly Desire). I think it would be better if you omitted the 4th and 5th lines (The December....your lips). It's really pretty though. Nice pic too.
