I'm sorry to say your Cyclamen looks to have died.

Watering of this plant should only be when the soil has dried out and care should be taken to water around the edges and not directly into the crown of the plant.
Too much water can lead to root rot.
Cyclamen also need a cool growing environment.

Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.
