Aural writing

Will I write to you or you to me as I learn?
Will I hear your voice and you mine in this repeated form?

More than this
What will the believer and the unbeliever hear?
Only one thing for both - that you are near and not without a real effect on all who call.

Every psalm praises your desirableness
Why are we hearing only silence?
Even surprise turns of phrase are ignored as if meaning what we already know.
How can this be when we know nothing?
