The night exploded and I felt this small pain in my chest.”

The phrase ‘the night exploded’ refers to the sudden attack on the soldier’s army by the enemies which may have included bomb explosions along with the firing of bullets. The soldier along with the other mates had been fighting the entire night. The poet has personified the night to describe how gruesome the war had been.
