The words on the painting are my own prose:

My shell is hard, 
but have you ever considered that it is there to protect something fragile
and precious?
Your shell is hard,
but it is invisible, a shield necessary for your survival.
I long to lift this mantle from my body 
high enough to welcome you in
so that we can be fragile
and strong
together.
