Something Dark Inside

Comes as wooden as a tree,
Covered in paint, don’t you see,
Makes you laugh, or run and hide,
For it has something dark inside.

A pencil. It’s wooden, is covered in paint and the output of a pencil in the form of writing or art can make you laugh or cry. And graphite is the dark part inside.

Pencils don’t make you laugh or run and hide. This is a poorly done riddle.

I’ve clarified the answer. What the pencil produces (the written word or art) makes you laugh or run and hide, not the pencil itself.
