From your description I can perfectly imagine how such a creative process may shape. I personally like to paint and there is a similarity in that comparison, as I work on painting, which may take sometimes months, being drawn to it again and again, until I finally drop brushes or kick the damn canvas. (I swear latter doesn't happen very often) Interesting thing about naming the work is that after all this creating phase comes the moment when you start to think about its name, and here is the rub: I am facing perhaps similar difficulty as you. It's part of the process but it is its final step, and it requires stepping back, as you said and I like that. Distilling all that effort you went through, into fitting name is alchemist work. BTW If you felt embarassed, I want to encourage you, because you are doing good. I'm not expert on poetry but I find yours very original it delights me. After all, errors are necessary part of that.
