Is there a changed country condition? You must assess your situation with an immigration lawyer who has a good grasp of asylum issues.

Your question refers to a two-year lapse, but the body of it states a one-year lapse of time. Regardless it will be pointless to reapply without assessing a change in your situation or your home country that affects you, within the past year. You need to discuss the specifics of your case with an experienced immigration attorney.
