What is the relationship between your speaking voice and your writing voice?

I think there is a level of dialogue that one can achieve in writing that one cannot in speaking, and poetry of course also involves metaphor and a subtle nuance with language that one may not come up with when one is speaking, because I think when one is writing, or when I am writing, I'm almost in a trance, and I'm not aware of where the words or images come from, they just do, so I don't consciously think about it. And I think one enters a very private and inner world where the most intimate things can be spoken about in a poem, or alluded to in a poem, and I think one wouldn't have that quietness or concentration in a conversation.
