Yes...

The black cloud is a motif that appears across cultures and over a long period of time, primarily in visual arts but also in some stories. Thought becomes image, image becomes entity. It is, however, inherently malleable and can have different effects; consistently associated with negative mental states such as depression, sociopathy, aggression, etc. Think about the contexts in which you've seen or heard about a black cloud hovering over a character, and you'll get an idea of the range.

Also, terrifically apt icon.
