Thanks for writing to us.
It seems you could have cut it deep and due to slight bleeding in the area it turned black. Another possibility could be that it is not a corn but wart.
Please meet a dermatologist nearby to get the lesion examined for proper differentiation amongst the probabilities and further management.
Hope that helped.
Take care
