The lines are dark because of the frass (poop) produced by the insect as it is feeding. (reply...)

Elijah,  the dark lines are caused by a leaf mining insect (likely a fly in the Family Agromyzidae).  Notice that the lines are narrow, that's when the maggot is small and as it feeds and grows larger, the line gets fatter.  The fly pupates and emerges from the leave.  You would find a hole in the leaf epidermis at the end of the line.
