You and the night

There's something about the night
it brings darkness that allows you see
silence that helps you hear

There's something about the night
that sets you on a high
you can almost touch the sky

There's something about the night
that shields
no insecurities, no fears, no rules.

Just you and the night.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
How does this theme appeal to you?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Last few words: 
I love the night
Editing stage: 


Short and sweet that's how I like them.
I have been away from Neopoet for a while trying to collect my thoughts.
I came across your poem & I felt the love pop up once again.
O.K. you did great but for now like the famed Cat Stevens said, "I must be on my way".
great job !

Maybe you could get someone to put it to music as it would make a good lyric too, but works alone as a poem with its nice simplicity. Hits the universal poetic rhetoric.
I also like the poetry of Soyinka.

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance
