beauty is the idol of my family

Yesterday I met an ugly man
But he was beautiful 
To me
And it pains me to think
That all of my loved ones
Swooped in
Like vultures 
To tell me
To dig the line deeper
In the sand
Between us
Voices in my head
Now heavy
As if with bodies
Whispering judgements
I cannot bear to hear
