There is a cactus in my throat

Words no longer belong to me.
They explode as they roll of my tongue.

You should stay away from me.
Stay away from the cactus in my throat;
A necklace of murderous thorns.

I can’t control it, you know.
My voice comes out in spikes and pricks.

I think I killed someone the other day;
Oops.

A verbal spear right through the heart.
The blood makes me dizzy.

I’m sorry.

I should have it surgically removed.
Not that I haven’t tried before. Hey!

There is a cactus in my throat.
Hey!

There is a cactus in my throat!
