Oedipus and Orpheus

Who could have spun such a tale as this?
Oedipus or Orpheus.

Poor Oedipus blinded himself
Saw his wife and mother die.

While willing Orpheus’s love
became a shade before his eyes.

When looking ahead or
Looking back can turn
a heart to lead.

Nothing loving ever arises when
answers are proof that
You’ve lost all surprises.

So who could have spun such a tale as this?
I’m through tonight. I’ll let you guess.
