No, it's a metaphor, unless you had more, example:
Her heart is black like the night
Or
Her heart is as black as the night

Simply "Her heart is black" would be figurative language or a metaphor.

No, it is not a simile. A simile compares one thing to another using like or as.

Like a revival, like an orison!
