"my life dripped away between my hands" / "my life dripped away off my hands"? To express life was gone drop by drop without realizing it until too late. Like small dripping in a broken sink.

Yes we know what it means. The expression is correct. You cannot say "off". Life is not on your hands, say it cannot drip off. It drips between the hands.
