enter image description hereI have been growing a pineapple in my house. Maybe for 5-6 years. Now my pineapple is too tall and sharp. Unfortunately I can not grow it in outside. So I wanna cut it for safety. Can I cut my pineapple leaves? I really worry. Will it die, after I cut it.

Yes, you can cut your leaves without the plant dying. Pruning pineapple plants is common for the very reason you're describing. If you have fruit growing (which it doesn't look like you do), then you would wait 1-2 months until after harvesting it.

Here's a link that describes the pruning in more detail- https://homeguides.sfgate.com/times-prune-pineapples-guavas-33717.html

    I would try cutting it now near the top string that you have tied around it. This should give it plenty of remaining leaves to keep growing. The fact that you've had it this long is a good sign that it's a hardy plant. Clear away any dead leaves towards the bottom as well. If you like my answer, would you mind upvoting it, please? I wish you and your pineapple plant well.

I am not an expert, But I did some research... It could be the fact that you plant wants more sunlight for an easy answer. Umm if that's not it though you can text me back I love looking into this kind of stuff.
