Typically, contractions are quite useful...

"Heav'n hath no rage like love to hatred turn'd. Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorn'd."

- William Congreve


It's not bad if you just spell out heaven, turned, and scorned. Otherwise, it's vicious.

"Our live experiences, fixed in aphorisms, stiffen into cold epigrams. Our heart's blood, as we write it, turns to mere dull ink." F. H. Bradley
